About Dead Broke Farm

Dead Broke Farm’s mission is to provide horses and trails for people who love horses and riding but can’t have horses of their own. We offer a safe environment where you can come to ride without having to register for a series of lessons requiring a significant investment in time and money. Our passion and love of horses in conjunction with our desire to share that experience with others has resulted in our use of many horses that we rescued from terrible conditions of neglect, abuse, and even death. We’d like to share some of those rescue horse stories with you. But if you've been dreaming of owning your own horse, we have some nice trail horses for sale right here in Raleigh, NC.

Located on 110 rolling, wooded acres in the Raleigh / Durham / RTP area, Dead Broke Farm offers you the opportunity to experience North Carolina's beauty in the most natural way - by horseback!

At our farm, you'll ride along winding trails through a shady forest with rolling hills. You can hear the rhythm of your horse, a lazy creek, and an abundance of wildlife. It's almost as if - for a while - you've stepped back in time to rediscover the natural beauty that surrounds you. But for those of you seeking a more adventurous ride, we can pick up the pace on sections of the trail where it's safe to do so. (Advanced riders may want to consider a private ride to ensure that we can cater to your level of experience rather the level of the least experienced rider in the group.) And...

Safety Considerations & Restrictions

Safety is an important consideration in all our riding programs. We provide experienced guides, riding instructions, and riding helmets at no additional charge. Ages 6 and up can ride at our farm and will get a horse of their own.

We want to make horseback riding available and accessible to everyone, so we have at least 12 draft horses (similar to the Budweiser Clydsdales who pull the beer wagon) to accommodate larger riders.

We have a variety of rides that children ages two and up can participate in. They can ride on their own when they are six years old and up. If they are younger than six, they can do the 1-hour trail ride along with the rest of the family.
