Robison Horse Ranch is a 35 acre facility that has a large arena, round corral and a 1/2 mile workout track. There are miles of desert trail to ride your horses on or train for endurance. We also offer lessons on our resident horses. This is a working ranch and you can be involved as much or as little as you prefer. The Southern Sierras are close by and offer excellent hiking opportunities as well. If you are looking for a 'horsey' vacation-this is it!
I was raised on this ranch and have been busy on it for the last 48 years! The horses and I have hosted all kinds of organizations and people from all over the world. Renting to other equine lovers would broaden my scope in sharing the ranch with others.

Thirteen horses reside on the ranch presently. I love this ranch for it's remoteness, peace, stars and phenomenal sunsets. It is old, rustic and a great place for much needed R&R and enjoying the equine residents.
The stars are amazing at night and the clean air is refreshing.
Going here was such a perfect little getaway for us, our dog, and our three boys. The cabin was a real authentic cabin experience, and was also clean and nicely decorated. There is a great wood burning stove and once we had that up and running together with the space heaters the cabin warmed up. It was so amazing to be on a ranch and have the horses right there. We loved that this wasn't only lodging - it also provided us with activities even if we just hung around the ranch itself. The kids enjoyed helping out with feeding and different chores and loved getting lessons to ride on their own. The scenery is amazing as well. The owner is so flexible and made it work for us even though we planned so last minute. We really hope we can come back.
This was truly an amazing family vacation for us! The kids started out skeptical and disappointed due to some horse activities being planned for them. However, by the end of the first day grooming, saddling and riding the horses, the kids were saying it "this is the best vacation ever". Leslie was very kind and helpful suggesting day trips we could take while we were here. We didn't end up leaving the ranch, except on horseback, because the kids has so much to explore around the ranch. Rustic is a good word to describe the house and there were a few kinks to work out but Leslie was all ears and eggar to fix them. If you're looking for a plush hotel or fancy desert lodging, this is not it. However, if you are looking for a great value family vacation that will force personal interaction and communication while giving appreciation for the simple things in life, I highly recommend this trip! This vacation was a great bonding experience for our family and we would do it again in a heartbeat.
Six adult members of our family spent four nights at the ranch. The backdrop of the Sierras is magnificent: unparalleled beauty, there is no other place like it on earth. The real adventure at the ranch is interacting with and handling the horses, and every one of us had a great time and had nothing but positive things to say about our stay. Our levels of experience with horses ranged from very (my sister and I grew up on a small farm) to very little, and yet everyone had a great time handling and riding the horses. The trainer, Megan, was knowledgeable and very used to working with people, horses, and the two together. Our horse handling, arena training and trail ride were fun for everyone and learning experiences for those unused to being around horses. Leslie, the owner, told us that the lodgings were rustic, but they were more than adequate. She made us feel welcome and made sure that we had everything we needed. She even went on the trail ride with us, which was an added treat. We had a big fire going every night and cooked our meals, played games and watched DVDs. We also explored the area a bit, visiting and hiking in both the Red Rock Canyon State Park and the Alabama Hills near Lone Pine. We'd do it again in a heartbeat and hope to do so.
