Where Do Our Horses Come From?

Dead Broke Farm buys and rescues horses, rehabilitates them, trains them, corrects performance issues, puts lots of trail hours on them, and then offers excellent trail horses for sale. Our horses have been ridden with dogs through creeks, mud, hills and past deer, four-wheelers, tractors, and birds who fly up right in front of them. So if you're looking for a good, solid horse, check out the horses we have for sale. We have horses for sale to satisfy all experience levels from beginner to intermediate to advanced riders, and we're conveniently located in Raleigh, NC.

We buy horses from individuals and horse auctions. In fact, many of our rescue horses were obtained from auctions where we outbid kill buyers. Rescue and free aren't synonymous when it comes to horses. Regardless of how we obtain our horses, we eventually offer them for sale. Prior to sale, they are put through a process to ensure they are safe, sound, and sane. We de-worm them when we unload them from the trailer and prior to putting them in pastures with out other horses. If they have a snotty nose, are under weight, need hoof care or shoes, we put them on meds and have the farrier out within a week to address their hoof care needs. We float their teeth, clean the sheaths of the geldings, and de-bean them so you don't have to. In other words, we assume all the risks of buying a horse for you. We remove the pain and pitfalls of buying the wrong horse and ending up in the hospital or with a lame horse. In rare cases where we make a mistake and buy or rescue a horse that we can't mold into a nice, quiet horse that anyone can ride, we pursue other avenues of re-homing them; we don't sell them from our farm as dead broke, safe trail horses. We evaluate our horses to determine their temperment and level of rider required to ride them, and that information is included in our ads.
