Following in her mother and sister Cassidy’s footsteps, Kimberly Palmer began a career in vaulting. Competing individually and with sister Cassidy in pas-de-deux competitions, Kimberly has earned many accolades. At only 9, Palmer was second in the Copper Individual Female division at the 2004 AVA/USEF National Vaulting Championships. The following year, she was the winner of the Bronze Individual Female division at the 2005 AVA/USEF National Championship.
In 2010, Kimberly began pas-de-deux competitions with Cassidy.
The sisters debuted strong, winning the Chilliwack CVI2*. It didn’t take them long to leave an impression on the world stage. The pair won the FEI World Cup™ Vaulting 2013/2014 leg at the Stuttgart German Masters, making them the first U.S. vaulters to win a World Cup event. In 2014, she represented the U.S. at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in the FEI World Pas-de-Deux Vaulting Championship with Cassidy. The sisters won five out of six pas-de-deux competitions in 2015, including a World Cup Final qualifying competition in Paris and at the Nations Cup competition in Verden.
Like her sister, Kimberly also competes on the Half Moon Bay team.
