I've ridden at Dead Broke Farms several times over the past few years. I've been with my kids as well as my girl friend. We always have a great time. The staff there is friendly and helpful. Do not expect anything fancy, no sunset champagne rides, no pampering, no elaborate lodges or barns, just good old fashioned, riding on a... More

My 10 year old daughter and I visited Dead Broke Farm and had a wonderful time. Ms. Carla was great!! A couple of years after our visit I rescued a horse. Because I was inexperienced with horses I called Ms. Carla; she came out to my barn and spent about 3 hours with me and my horse. She is extremely... More

While visiting my in-laws for Thanksgiving five of us saddled up at Dead Broke. We received thorough instructions- and many good tips for those of us who've rode before. Hunter demonstrated tips for a safe and enjoyable ride including some of the "why's" of how a horse responds to commands. Very interesting for a beginning rider. It's clear they care... More

I had a wonderful time at the farm and decided to go back this November with more people. We took the two hour horse ride and the trails were amazing. The horses were well behaved and clean. They did not spend a lot of time eating on the trail and they listen well. The tour guide person was wonderful and... More

Me and my to be girlfriend I hope took the two hour private trail ride. I read mixed reviews before visitING the farm I have to say that the negative reviews are wrong. We both had the most amazing peaceful date one could want. I think the owner cares about what she does and is very frank if someone is... More

My husband and I wanted to start an annual tradition for our 2 young grandchildren. At the time they were living in the DC area, so we chose a "rural" activity to showcase the beauty of NC. Neither of us are experienced horsemen and were very cautious about a 3 year old and 5 yr old riding. The guides were... More

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
