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

The super friendly and knowledgeable staff were great, and made it an enjoyable experience for everyone. We had some time down at the private pond to enjoy with the horses. On our... 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

I took my son (7) to go horseback riding today and we both really enjoyed ourselves.This was our first experience at Dead Broke Farm. My son loves being around horses and we were looking for something informal; a chance to get on a horse and try riding. It ended up providing us with just the experience we were looking for.Carla...

I've ridden at Dead Broke Farms several times over the past few years. I've been with my kids as well as my girl friend. We always have a great time. The staff there is friendly and helpful. Do not expect anything fancy, no sunset champagne rides, no pampering, no elaborate lodges or barns, just good old fashioned, riding on a... More
