Redrock Trail Rides ~ Kathie Sullivan
13597 Katydid Avenue
Sparta, Wisconsin 54656
Located high atop a scenic ridge in central Monroe County, the “Redrock” and surrounding land has been in the Sullivan family for four generations. Hence the name for the trail-riding business was born. On your ride to the rock you will find calming and tranquil beauty. Perhaps you’ll even spot some of the area’s whitetail deer, squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks, eagles, hawks and wild turkeys. Of course, since the trails are located on a working dairy farm, you will see a herd of Holstein cows grazing contentedly on a nearby hillside and maybe get to pet a new calf.
When you reach the “Redrock,” you will dismount and tie the horses for a walk out on the rock. From there you can fully enjoy the breath-taking beauty of several miles of valley below. Be sure to bring your camera to capture some of the beautiful scenery, and maybe a picture of you or the kids with your horse.
You may choose from any one of 31 horses. Rock N Red, Vega, Misty, Robbi, and Stilts are just some of the gentle, well-broke, horses and ponies waiting to take you on the trails.
