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 have gone to Dead Broke Farm for several years and just love it! Carla, her mom and the staff are always so nice and helpful. I have learned so much about horses and riding horses from them. The guides are helpful and always very nice. The trails are just beautiful and I always leave with so much peace. I... More

My 10 year old daughter and I visited Dead Broke Farm and had a wonderful time. Ms. Carla was great!! A couple of years after our visit I rescued a horse. Because I was inexperienced with horses I called Ms. Carla; she came out to my barn and spent about 3 hours with me and my horse. She is extremely... More

While visiting my in-laws for Thanksgiving five of us saddled up at Dead Broke. We received thorough instructions- and many good tips for those of us who've rode before. Hunter demonstrated tips for a safe and enjoyable ride including some of the "why's" of how a horse responds to commands. Very interesting for a beginning rider. It's clear they care... More

I had a wonderful time at the farm and decided to go back this November with more people. We took the two hour horse ride and the trails were amazing. The horses were well behaved and clean. They did not spend a lot of time eating on the trail and they listen well. The tour guide person was wonderful and... More

We both had the most amazing peaceful date one could want. I think the owner cares about what she does and is very frank if someone is... More

My husband and I wanted to start an annual tradition for our 2 young grandchildren. At the time they were living in the DC area, so we chose a "rural" activity to showcase the beauty of NC. Neither of us are experienced horsemen and were very cautious about a 3 year old and 5 yr old riding. The guides were... More

Go and experience the farm for yourself! It's alot of work to rescue horses. Work and money! My family's been there twice, everytime we come from New Jersey and visit while on vacation, and WE LOVE it. The meandering trails are quiet and scenic, and very relaxing. I think some people have certain expectations on what horses are like... what... More
