Serenity Ridge Farm



Welcome to Back Road Eventing

Back Road Eventing is owned and operated by Katie Bystrom and based out of 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 25 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 heads up education for Area VII as the Eventing Certification Program (ECP) 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. 


Competition Team

The BR Eventing Competition Teams is a hardworking group of awesome riders who love everything about horses.  Team members are held to a high stardard. We are looking for riders with a positive attitude, who are accountable, hard working, and driven to meet their goals.
We are here to support riders learn all of the ins and outs of riding and showing. So much goes into maintaing and caring for performance horses. It's important to us that our riders can wrap, braid, clip, manage their tack, and keep their horse looking and feeling great. 

The focus of our team training is to be competitive in Dressage, Jumpers or Three Day Eventing. We also prioritize trail riding and heading to the beach with our horses to relax and have fun!
