Dead Broke Farms saddles novice and experienced riders on one of more than 90 horses for private guided treks along 10 miles of bridle trails that carve through the lush, rolling woodlands of a 112-acre farm. Dead Broke’s experienced staff pairs jockeys with their steeds after a quick quiz that distills compatibility essentials such riding experience, oat preference, and favorite Beatle. After the staff reviews equine safety tips, guests can splash across creeks, meander past hardwoods, and potentially spy on local wildlife including deer, cranes, turkeys, and eccentric college roommates who are living off the grid. Private rides allow for more personalized expeditions, tackling trails that better match riding levels of couples and families.

Dead Broke preaches real riding techniques that emphasize balance and control, rather than recklessness and carrot-related bribery. It also seek to cultivate a stable of happy, healthy horses by encouraging enthusiasts to join its volunteer program and supporting a rescue program that has saved more than 50 four-legged friends in seven years. Dead Broke recommends wearing long pants, close-toed shoes, and fire-proof clothing should anyone ride off into the sunset.

Dead Broke Farm

Dead Broke Farm's name derives not only from the cost of owning horses, but also from the terminology for teaching a horse to wear a saddle—known in the industry as “breaking a horse to ride.” Trainers stable “dead broke,” or thoroughly saddle-trained, horses, alongside more spirited animals on the 110-acre farm. They also house steeds saved through their horse-rescue program, with more than 70 of their mounts avoiding fates in slaughterhouses and other undesirable ends since 2004.

Horses show off their trotting chops during farm trail rides, carrying riders on explorations of the rolling hills and whispering creeks scattered across more than 10 miles of bridle trails cut through woods populated by deer, cranes, and other wildlife. Private rides allow for more personalized routes and can incorporate stops at scenic ponds for proposals or more challenging terrain for advanced riders. Instructors also schedule horseback-riding lessons, teaching balance through rides over undulating terrain rather than through exercises such as riding a horse that is riding a seesaw.
