Back Road Eventing is owned and operated by Katie Bystrom and based out of her Equestrian Center Serenity Ridge Farm in Pullman, WA. It is a family run and operated farm- everybody helps- even the kids!
Katie has been eventing in Area VII for over 20 years. She grew up in Pony Club and is so appreciative of the horsemanship education she received from the program. She currently sits on the Area VII Council and head up education for Area VII as the Instructor Certification Program Coordinator. Education is very important to Katie- you can never stop learning!
Our clients are a fun loving group of people who love horses and taking the best care of them. From the competition arena to trail riding in the mountains we enjoy it all.
The BR Eventing Junior Teams is a hardworking group of awesome young riders who love everything about horses. Team members are matched with a borrowed horse or they can ride their own. They learn all of the ins and outs of riding- wrapping, first aid, loading, braiding, how to clip, parts of the horse and tack etc. The program is modeled off of the United States Pony Club model and many of our riders are working their way through the USPC Ratings. The focus of the team is training to be competitive in Dressage, Jumpers or Three Day Eventing.
