About The Venue

Welcome to the Sand Flats ETS Event!!  Katie has been hard at work putting together some fun new obstacles for you!

We are holding our ETS Event at the Riverside Equine Park located in beautiful Spokane, Washington on the Spokane River and only a few miles from Airway Heights.  

Within the park, you will find a great place to play and rest. The equine area was designed for the equine enthusiast with a 200x300 working arena, 50' a round pen, ground obstacles built by Back Country Horseman of Washington.

 There are campsites available, bathrooms, is the website that you need to go to reserve your campsite if you are wanting to camp. 

This is a LEAVE NO TRACE facility~ Please make sure and clean up after yourselves and your horse!!

Once the Campsite is full- We will have "overflow" dry overnight camping for $27 a night in the Pasture North of the campsite area.

There are also 25 miles of trails that wrap around the Spokane River, an outdoor arena, and a round pen in the upper Equine area if you would like to utilize those as well. Come early or stay a few days!

Event Details

We will also be utilizing the Obstacle Course on Friday for an In Hand Obstacle Challenge event.
