Unfortunately our experience was terrible here. Bad customer service and an unsafe riding experience. Never going back

My daughter, who is 6, absolutely loves going to camp here! This is her second year & I am sure it will not be the last. It is a very laid back atmosphere with not much planned as far as activities so this camp isn't for everyone but if you love the farm life you will love it here! She... More

My daughter who is 11, has completely enjoyed the camp, she has loved horses for as long as I can remember and this year I decided let's see how she does, she has so much fun on the trail rides, says the guides are great and has much respect for Dana. She comes home exhausted : ) but very happy.... More

That has to be a total lie. I have worked as a volunteer at dead broke farms and every horse i have ridden has treated me well. Usually when someone falls a horse that is the persons fault, especially after listening to the directions. There is a possibility that you hurt the horse and that horse got scared.That is not...

We found this farm through another search engine and took a gamble that it would turn out alright. We have now ridden 4 times, every couple of months for a special,occasion or with family visiting. The place is very laid back and very friendly. The animals,come first and they aren't afraid to tell a kid when she is mishandling a... More

I took my wife to Dead Broke Farm so she could experience riding a horse for the first time. She was very nervous since she has never been around horses ever in her life. This nervousness escalated to sheer fright as she got in the saddle and was willing to get off and quit as soon as she got on.... More

Three of us decided to go on a private ride because we didn't want to have the standard "trail ride". We were of different abilities - but our horses matched each of us well. The horses were well behaved but not boring! Our guide was young and had been volunteering and working on this farm for many years and clearly... More

I have to say my husband and I were tentative sending our two daughters (ages 6 and 9) to the Dead Broke summer camp for a week. While the girls were all for it, we were thinking, "would we be paying for them just to run around a farm?" After a whole week of camp, I can honestly say my... More

Thanks so much for sharing your opinion (and your children's opinions) of our farm. It makes all our hard work worthwhile. It's so rewarding to be able to open our farm to others who haven't had an opportunity to experience life on a working horse farm. Our society has become so far removed from an agricultural farming society, many kids... More

My 9 year old daughter loves horses so she loved this camp. For me, the organization seems not quite up to par with what I would expect from a business, but I get the impression this is family and neighbor run. The kids ride twice a day for an hour (unless it was too hot for the horses and on... More

The only people who could give this place a positive review are those with no horse experience. I have owned horses for 20 years and I can say as a parent that I would never, ever send my child to this summer camp. I would not trust these horses or any one working there. Horses that wind up in facilities... More

This doesn't sound like my farm at all. I think you must have DBF mixed up with some other farm because it is factually incorrect. Certainly everyone is entitled to express their opinion, but that privilege doesn't give you authority to misrepresent businesses by spreading misinformation. DBF has been in the business of offering horseback riding to the public for... More
