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

I travel regularly to Raleigh from the UK. Every time I have at least 1 visit to Dead Broke Farm. Love this place, friendly people, healthy animals and a beautiful place. I have recommended several people and all have returned with a smile. Looking forward to my next trip.

Went for an hour trail ride for my 7 years old daughter's birthday. Had a hard time finding helmets that fit kids. There was only three guides for about 15 riders, only 6 of us were not in the summer camp so were expected to have zero experience, I have some experience riding, and my kids had been on lots...

I love it here. I grew up riding and since I moved to NC from New England a few years ago I rarely get the opportunity but this place is great. Every horse I've ridden has been great (the last one had was SUPER sweet and kept giving me kisses). I have never had any issues with staff or the... More

I am the mother of a seven year old daughter & a nine year old son. As a parent, I took a gamble on camp last minute because my emails were returned promptly & politely. I was very thankful for the list of appropriate items to bring as the day is long, outside, without plumbing, & void of the type... More

I agree that Dead Broke is a good place to ride, and have not seen anything negative contained in the other reviews. Pretty trails, lots of space, and the horses seem happy. However, the "camp" is simply two hours of riding per day, and the rest of the day is "down time". Some of the "counselors do not treat the... More

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
