Four Star Farm is a small horse farm located near Graham, WA near the base of Mt. Rainier. Sharon Lulham's youth programs help young children develop confidence, responsibility and teamwork in everyday life. Based on Pony Club principles, activities include riding lessons, horse manage-ment and safety, stable management, grooming, games, and crafts.Riding lessons provide the motivation to develop teamwork, communication skills, and responsibility. Riding instills balance, correct posture, focus, and confidence. Working with horses promotes trust, compassion and forgiveness. The end result: self esteem.Many of the children that experience working and riding at Four Star Farm participate in horse shows, first walking and trotting, and then advancing to beginning jumper classes and dressage. More advanced kids will participate in cross country shows. Several kids have moved on to working with trainersat intermediate and advanced levels.For those families that think about buying property and having horses for the kids Four Star Farm programs will serve as an introduction to what is involved. It means hard work and dedication.
