I started going to DBF in 2010 when I was 9 years old. I have ridden there ever since and love it. This place not only helps kids learn about horses but it also rescues horses. Some of my favorite horses there were saved from being abused or even killed by cruel owners. The horses are given second chances and turned into amazing kids horses that I grew up loving. I love DBF because not only do you get a amazing ride but your helping a great cause. Thanks DBF for everything you do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was so nice to bring my 5 year old to Dead Broke Farm and not have the normal morning melt down of him not wanting me to leave. On his first day he felt so comfortable there that he told me I could leave! He has learned a lot and truly enjoyed his week with them. I would recommend this camp for your child.

I was able to send my 9 and 12 year old girls for a week of track out camp and they loved it. They came home every night ready for a shower and bed after a long day. They got to ride horses, learn about them and enjoy interacting with all of the animals. They also really enjoyed the freedom they had while there. We will do this again as soon as we have the chance.

I was visiting from CT and wanted to take my 2 kids and husband on a trail ride. None of us have any horse experience at all. The first problem was that, the owner and all of the employees were extremely rude and unorganized. We were waiting in "line" for a while just to let them know we were there and when we finally got up to the front not only did we get an attitude, not told where to wait or what to do but the owner was sitting her a** down eating while trying to take money from people. No one seemed to know what they were doing. Then they tried to put me on a horse that looked a little too small for me (I was about 210lbs at the time). Even though I wrote down my weight on the paperwork, they still tried to put me on a smaller horse. Just by looking at the horse I could tell that (and I've never rode before), so I informed her and she then put me on the correct horse. My 5 yr old was going on a horse with a guide. But her and my 8 yr old were sitting on the horses for 1/2 while me and my husband (and most of the other 15 ppl on the trail) waited to be given horses. The employee didn't put my saddle on properly so during the hr long ride I was standing up trying to push the saddle over to one side because it was sliding to one side. During the ride there was a point where we walked through an open field and all of the sudden all the horses started to gallop fast (including the one my 8 yr old was on alone). My 8yr old was so scared and almost fell off. Some of the horses were not listening to the riders. Regardless of those things, my kids had a nice time, well because they are kids and love horses. But I wasn't impressed. Because I am not familiar with horses or the proper way to take care of them (to a certain degree) I didn't notice the poor conditions they were in until I came on here and read all the comments from experienced riders. I didn't realize that the horses didn't have stables (I thought the stables were somewhere away from where we rode them). I feel bad even giving this place money and hope that they go out of business.

Our 9 year old attended week long camp this summer and it was a great experience. She enjoyed the opportunity to spend some time on a real horse farm. The feeding and care of the animals was as fun for her as the trail rides. From the parents standpoint, the flexible drop-off and pick-up times worked out great for us. I will recommend the camp to others.

This is the end of my 6 year old daughter's 3rd week of camp at Dead Broke Farm and she is very sad that she will not be going back anymore this summer. She loves being there every day and seeing "her" horse. She says he is her baby and she loves him! She has come leaps and bounds from where she started her first week and even into the second week. Now she is confident and sure of herself when riding. Her Daddy and I were able to ride with her on Thursday and we had a great time. She did awesome and was even helping the other riders out by giving them instructions when they got stuck. I think we found a new hobby, she is a country girl at heart and Dead Broke Farm has allowed her to be just that. The experience is like none other! I highly recommend them for camps or if you just want to take beautiful ride on a horse through a beautiful wooded trail.
