In ancient times, a pristine sea evaporated leaving behind a rich mineral deposit deep within the earth in Southern Utah. Redmond Rock™ is a natural sea salt containing the trace minerals from that ancient sea. Due to intensive farming practices most soils have become depleted of these life giving minerals, and crops grown on these soils with common N-P-K fertilizer are mineral deficient too. Redmond Rock plays an important role in providing these essential trace minerals missing from many forages.
Horses thrive on the minerals Redmond Rock provides. In many cases, when given the rock for the first time, mineral deficient horses won’t leave it alone! The minerals in Redmond Rock can help restore and bring your horse back into his natural mineral balance.
By including Redmond Rock as a free choice mineral supplement in their pasture or stall your horse will have access to the finest natural mineral source available, and in the form that the horse’s natural intelligence teaches him to seek.
Whether you ride your horse competitively for show, eventing, or just take him on the trail for a brisk Saturday morning ride, Redmond Rock can help restore balance and improve the time you and your horse spend together.
