My daughter Penny loves her time here! She enjoyed the 5 days horse riding camp very much and wishes to come back again. My 2 years old son asked to come with me to pick up his sister, for he wanted to see and play with the horses. The staffs are friendly and the horses are very sweet. Although it... More

My daughter went to camp for a week and she had such a great time. The staff and the horses were terrific. Great environment and very safe. I even went on a trail ride. Such a good experience. We will come back. Good family fun.

My daughter (9) attended camp here and it was the perfect mix of learning horsemanship and enjoying free, unstructured time at the farm. We met many dedicated volunteers and staff members who clearly love their work and the horses. My daughter absolutely loved the grooming in particular (along with, of course, the two one-hour trail rides per day). I don't... More

My daughter has been to Dead Broke Farm 3 times and loves every minute of this camp. She constantly talks about the horses and the adventures they have gone on! She is already asking when she can do another week of camp!

My daughter loves her time here! Everyday she didn't want to leave and she came home with new stories and experiences to share. The friendly staff was amazing, and she thoroughly enjoyed her fellow campers. The independence and work ethic is perfectly balanced with just the right amount of supervision and so much simple farm fun!

My 6 year old son just finished a full week at Dead Broke for track out camp. In addition to daily rides he also enjoyed feeding and caring for the animals. I found the staff to be friendly and enjoyed the less structured day so that he was free to choose his activities. I'd recommend the camp and plan to... More

I visited Dead Broke Farm for a solo ride and enjoyed every minute. The folks that run and work this farm do it for the love of horses. Don't expect fancy riding rings and glitzy set ups of other tourist equestrian centers. Do expect that you will be riding on some very nice, shaded trails, encounter wildlife, and on horses... More

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!
