All the participants showed their full commitment to face new challenges and learn new skills, impressing their coaches with newly learned jumps, backrolls, frontrolls and more.

On top of all the fun on the water the girls enjoyed beach games and stretching, a pool and cocktail party powered by Millenium Resort and Spa Cabarete and Grey Goose Vodka as well as a “White Dress” party at Emerald Beach Club.

A very special thanks goes to KB4girls Cabarete Chapter ambassadors Laurel Eastman and Audrey Meyer for making this event possible and for doing such a fabulous job with running the Chapter and Chapter Events throughout the season.

As part of the KB4girls Global Event in Cabarete the most improved riders were awarded and congratulations go to Mabreidy Martinez (DOM) Sandra Dirschl (GER), Lisa Lowe (USA). The Silke Gorld Spirit award for the most spirited lady in the event went to Cassidy Gammill (USA).
