Redmond Rock contains 60 + trace minerals to nourish and naturally balance your horse.
EXCELLENT HYDRATION AID
Contains essential electrolytes that encourage your horse to drink more.
HANDY HEMP ROPE
A tri-colored rope makes it easy to tie our rock to a gate, stall, barn, or fence post.
GREAT FOR TRAVELING

Use it as a healthy alternative to candy balls to keep horses occupied.
WILL NOT DISSOLVE
Our solid rock holds up better in wet weather and humidity than manufactured pressed salt blocks.

TIPS FOR USING REDMOND ROCK ON A ROPE
Here are some simple tips to introduce and help your horse get used to Rock on a Rope:
1. TIE IT AGAINST A POST
Tying Redmond Rock on a Rope tight against a post makes it easier for a horse to lick.
2. GIVE IT SOME SLACK
Giving the rope some slack creates a healthy alternative to candy balls and boredom busters in the stall.
3. TIE IT TO A FENCE
Tying Rock on a Rope to a fence outdoors keeps it out of the dirt and mud.
4. TIE IT LOWER ON A GATE
Tying it lower on a gate allows horses to maintain the posture they naturally assume when foraging.
5. USE A LITTLE MOLASSES
Pouring molasses on Rock on a Rope will encourage horses to lick if they aren’t initially interested.
WHAT MAKES REDMOND ROCK DIFFERENT FROM HIMALAYAN
Is Redmond Rock a better choice than Himalayan rock? Yes, we think so! 100% of our mineral salt is mined and packaged right here in the USA. We kind of like that. Redmond Rock also contains around 7% natural mineral content compared to 3% of most Pakistani-mined Himalayan rock.

"My horses love this! They would never lick the the mineral or salt blocks you find at the feed store. I know they really love the taste of the Redmond salt because their rocks are always shiny and slick from them constantly licking them. I take comfort in knowing it's an all natural product and my horses are getting the salt and 60+ trace minerals they need to maintain a high performance level."SHARLI
"Best mineral blocks on the market! With winter upon us, I ordered a few rocks just to keep on hand since my horses go through them a little faster in the winter and summer. I love the rope on the rocks, super easy to hang from various locations and stall configurations as well as from bucket straps for easy put up and take down. I love that the rocks don't get brittle in the cold, like other ones on the market. I love that the rocks stay off of the ground and I don't have to worry about feces or additional moisture on them. Additionally, if the rocks do get moisture on them, they don't disintegrate like other rocks, the water rolls off and doesn't keep eating away at the block. My horses love it and I am so happy to have this product in my barn! Highly recommend!"KRISTINA MULLEN
"Redmond ALL the way! My horses absolutely love the Redmond Rock on a rope! If I accidentally run out and grab another brand; my horses literally slow their intake of minerals. Once I put up another Redmond Rock on a rope, they are back to licking throughout the day! Obviously Redmond provides excellent ingredients but my horses prefer the taste as well! Redmond all the way!"MIKALYN CONNER
"Works amazing. In the last few months we travelled over 15000 miles with our horses they keep the happiness, shape, hydration in competition!"CAROLINE BOUCHER

They barely touch it
Hi Susan, Thanks for your question about Redmond Rock on a Rope. Here are a couple of suggestions that may be helpful. Sometimes horses have tongue sensitivities and don't like the rough texture, they might not like to lick, or they just might not think about it. That is why we recommend the Redmond Crushed loose salt in their daily feed. That way you know they are getting their daily dose of salt and trace minerals.
