I have another business trip to Raleigh next week and another opportunity to go riding at Dead Broke Farm! This past November I was in Raleigh and googled “horseback riding” and found this stable. I had a two hour ride with a leader who was a younger girl, I do not remember her name, but she was very good. What... More

We are in awe each time we arrive when we see those gorgeous horses lined up waiting to give us all a ride. It is a spiritually peaceful experience at the Deadbroke Farm, to encounter a bond with the horses. We have a great time feeding them all carrots and giving them horsey hugs :-). Carla deserves accolades for what... More

My family and I have thoroughly enjoyed Dead Broke Farms, the horses, the staff, and the peaceful trails each time we have visited over the last couple of years. The staff are always informational and have a passion for all of the animals on their farm. They not only prepare your horses but teach you the steps as well prior... More

I've come here quite a few times and have always had a good time. Yes, it takes some time to actually be able to ride but it's worth it. The last time I was there, I did have a bad experience with my horse. We were on the canter part and my horse took off and I ended up getting... More

On the day we arrived just to "check out the place", we didn't know if we'd be able to ride since we didn't have a reservation. The friendly staff (mostly Carla and her Mom) took us in, and although they were extremely short-handed that day, they hustled to accommodate everyone. The ride was safe and very peaceful, and the guides... More

I went on a private 2-hour trail ride on a beautiful Saturday. I loved the hilly, wooded trails full of creeks and wildlife. My mount was a cute, bay half-Arab named Dee Dee who was as sweet as she could be. The farm is run by three-generations of women, which I found cool. I found Carla responsive and very caring... More

I made a trip here back in November to check out some horses they had for sale and was not impressed. I was checking out a draft horse named Madonna (one they stated anyone could ride) and I wanted to see how she was with ground manners so I tried picking up her foot and after nearly getting kicked, Carla...

I made a reservation (for two people, for two hours), and with the confirmation email came items you should bring: water, camera, apple and carrots (for the horses), and a *tip for your guide*. As a 20% tipper as a matter of course, I expect that guides (I've been on guided tours--including on horseback--all over the world) will politely remind... More

Went to Dead Broke Farm to ride a horse during a beautiful afternoon. I grew up around them and have ridden them for the majority of my life. The horses were standing in an obscene amount of mud. I know that the staff can't control the weather and/or the mud; however...the chairs, equipment, and facilities should be kept clean. I... More

Carla C, Owner at Dead Broke Farm, responded to this review

You're correct in your observation: I do respond to some of the negative reviews because I feel that the public has a right to hear both sides - not just yours. I'm not even going to bother addressing any of your comments since I can't control the weather, and I run a FARM where there's dirt, manure, flies, and other... More

Hey Carla I just wanted to email you to let you know. That I enjoyed my two hour ride at your horse farm Friday morning. It was the most fun I have had in years. I had never been on a horse and wanted to ride one for years. Every since I can remember. My horse Rebel was so sweet... More
