“This freestyle is all new – the routine, the suit, so I really wanted to show off what I’ve been working on. I am so honored to be here and it was a really cool step for me. I feel like I’m at the top now and am just getting my name out there and showing the world and the judges what I can do,” said Palmer. 

Noah, who was aboard Corocoro 2, a 2005 Deutches Sportpferd gelding, was lunged by his owner Gundrun Lenz (GER), and the pair debuted a new freestyle routine, which earned them a 7.090 in the Freestyle Test.
