Go and experience the farm for yourself! It's alot of work to rescue horses. Work and money! My family's been there twice, everytime we come from New Jersey and visit while on vacation, and WE LOVE it. The meandering trails are quiet and scenic, and very relaxing. I think some people have certain expectations on what horses are like... what... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful horseback riding adventure! The staff were so helpful and made my 3 year old daughter's 1st trail ride memorable. We also enjoyed feeding the horses, visiting the other farm animals, and a picnic on the grounds. Highly recommend and look forward to our next visit! Many Thx!

My daughter cannot get enough! Every year, I ask my daughter what kind of party she wants for her birthday, and she always asks for another horseback riding party at Dead Broke. She has also gone on a trail ride with her Brownie troop. If you are looking to do something that is off the beaten path, want to enjoy... More

I have just started volunteering at DBF and absolutely love it there! Carla works very hard to ensure that her farm and (many) horses get the best of care! I work full time at my regular job, but all I want to do is be there to help with the horses, I absolutely love them! Carla takes in rescues (she... More

My sister and I had the pleasure of taking a 2-hour private ride with Carla (owner). It was amazing and just what we were looking for. My sister is more experienced and both of us were happy with the trail. It was not a cookie cutter, mainstream experience. It was just horses and the woods. Perfect! Loved the people, the... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a trail ride at Dead Broke Farm a few weeks ago for my birthday and have been talking about it since. Carla has always been so helpful when we spoke on the phone and it was great to hear that it's a family owned farm and that the family is in charge. I grew up... More

No part of me would EVER recommend this place for many reasons. I first visited this farm a year ago. My husband and I went on a trail ride for my birthday which was not a good experience. There were many things that went wrong and I should have written a review back then but I didn't. First off the... More

Please be forewarned and heed the poor reviews of this horrible place. I have never been treated so rudely in my life. Carla, the "owner", is just absolutely out of control, I cannot believe this farm is still in business. We arrived for a private trail ride & waited for 45 minutes before any of the staff showed up. At... More

We had my sons 3rd birthday party at Dead Broke, and it is absolutely the only thing he asks for every year, so again this year we will be celebrating his 5th Birthday with the fantastic people and animals at Dead Broke. We love the rustic feel of the place and the real trail rides offered opposed to just going... More

I arranged for a private ride as a special mother-daughter bonding event with my 10 year old. When I booked it, I told Carla that it was my daughter's first time on a horse. When we got there, the grandma was nice in checking us in and then we waited ...and waited...and waited. Eventually the grandma called her daughter, Carla,... More
