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

My daughter who is 11, has completely enjoyed the camp, she has loved horses for as long as I can remember and this year I decided let's see how she does, she has so much fun on the trail rides, says the guides are great and has much respect for Dana. She comes home exhausted : ) but very happy.... More

That has to be a total lie. I have worked as a volunteer at dead broke farms and every horse i have ridden has treated me well. Usually when someone falls a horse that is the persons fault, especially after listening to the directions. There is a possibility that you hurt the horse and that horse got scared.That is not...

We found this farm through another search engine and took a gamble that it would turn out alright. We have now ridden 4 times, every couple of months for a special,occasion or with family visiting. The place is very laid back and very friendly. The animals,come first and they aren't afraid to tell a kid when she is mishandling a... More

I took my wife to Dead Broke Farm so she could experience riding a horse for the first time. She was very nervous since she has never been around horses ever in her life. This nervousness escalated to sheer fright as she got in the saddle and was willing to get off and quit as soon as she got on.... More

Three of us decided to go on a private ride because we didn't want to have the standard "trail ride". We were of different abilities - but our horses matched each of us well. The horses were well behaved but not boring! Our guide was young and had been volunteering and working on this farm for many years and clearly... More
