Respect, riding and responsibility

Larry Johnson can teach anyone to ride a horse.

Johnson and his team of counselors teach children how to care for horses during summer camps at SaddleRock Farm.

"In one week, they will be riding four different horses alone, with no help," he said. "They learn in one week how to control a horse. It's pretty neat to see."

Johnson and his wife, Mary, own SaddleRock Farm. The camp began five years ago with one week and six campers. It has since grown to three weeks over the summer with 15 campers each.
