As a current employee of Dead Broke Farm I have to refute a few things that have been said recently. I have been called "slave labor" and it has been said that we employees are forced to work 100 plus hours a week. There are two caretakers that live on property and we CHOOSE to work as many hours as... More

Don't go! The owner is an abusive person who has serious anger management issues and treats her employees, customers and horses horribly. Employees are forced to work 100+ hours/wk, horses are overworked. All she does is scream at people. The place should be shut down and the owner jailed. One of my worst experiences ever!

Below is the email I wrote to the owner. Owner, I took my little girl to your horse farm for her fifth birthday party. What a mistake I made. I scheduled the party to start at 3:00pm. No one knew we were supposed to be there. We were told to "hang out". So we did, we ate, and did the... More

We were welcomed in and provided service. The people and horses are very friendly. I called to make reservations for the day and received an individual who is doing what they can to keep this place going to serve horses that may not have had a home. And yet she is still making sure we are being provided for to... More

I went for two private rides in one week, and wished I could have done more. It took me a little while to learn how light a touch the horses needed--the two I rode didn't even need bits. They were easy to ride, responsive, and great trail horses. It's Western-style riding. The land is varied and scenic, with hills, woods,... More

I wanted to share my recent experience buying a horse from Deadbroke Farm. I had ridden quite a bit as a child and through my teen years, but hadn't ridden seriously in over 20 years. I did keep a very, very old pony that I had rescued as basically a pet, but she had passed away several years ago (she... More
