What We Do Here
Pine Lake Pastures is a farm dedicated to helping people and animals heal and grow. Cheri Morton, owner and head trainer, had a dream to open a barn where everyone felt welcome; a place where students could get quality lessons at an affordable rate, and where unwanted horses could be given the love and patience needed to help them prove they too could shine in their purpose!
Pine Lake Pastures offers riding lessons for beginners through advanced riders. Lessons can be built around your desire to learn. Students range from 3 years old to retirement. Want to trail ride, show at games, or learn to jump? Maybe you fell off your horse and need to rebuild your confidence on one of our lessons horses? Pine Lake Pastures has a program that can help you learn. Many of the students attend shows throughout the summer and because of the consistent training- they are always bringing in ribbons!
Besides lessons, Cheri Morton also runs Promise Kept Therapeutic Riding, a horse related therapy program for special needs children and adults. The program is run at Pine Lake Pastures. Horseback riding has been a proven benefit to increase speaking ability, core strength, behavioral modification for children diagnosed on the autisic spectrum, and confidence building.
Cheri also volunteers her farm and time in the community with 4H. She donates hundreds of hours for helping the youth of St Croix County.
Feel free to email Cheri to find out more about lessons, training or volunteering at the farm. email@example.com

Pine Lake Pastures offers a variety of camps throughout the summer for beginning through advanced equestrians. Half-day camps for younger students and overnight camps for advanced students.
Students at Pine Lake Pastures excel at horse shows. Traveling locally to hunter/jumper, dressage, and gymkhana shows, our family of students jump to the challenge.
We offer both private and group lessons for ages 3 to super senior. Lessons are offered in both Western and English saddles with the emphasis being on a balanced seat. We have both indoor and multiple outdoor arenas with lessons offered year-round.
Do you have a child interested in horses? Our Junior Lesson program is the perfect solution to introduce your child to the horse world. Find out their commitment to horses by learning safety, saddling, and beginning riding in a one to one environment.
What Drives Us
LOVE GOD/LOVE PEOPLE
The Mission of Pine Lake Pastures and Promise Kept Therapy is to love God and love people. The way we show our love for God is to treat every soul we meet as if she or he were the very own child of God. We utilize horses and animals as a vessel to help individuals grow, heal and strengthen in physical ability and character. We work, teach and plan for the future through God’s grace yet exercise and develop discipline for the journey.
We charge for our services to the public and make it as affordable as possible while maintaining a good standard of living for the animals and the upkeep of the farm. We believe in giving back- we donate our services and lessons to silent auctions and fundraisers and give a portion of our income to local charities. We receive gifts and volunteer work with open arms and a grateful heart. We believe all good things come from God and are so thankful He brought you to us!
We stand by the saying, “nothing you can do will make me love you more, nothing you have done will make me love you less”. This is how God feels about us and we extend this to our family at Pine Lake Pastures and Promise Kept.
A great big thanks to Chris Knitter for designing our new and improved website.
