Lisa Lockhart is sponsored by Fay Ranches Sales Agents: Kebi Smith, Neil Bangs, Cheryl Summer, Mike Konstant, RJ Patterson, John Anderson, Kimberly Lowry, Dixie Barry, Kevin Stowe.
As a native of Montana being raised on a farm/ranch, the western lifestyle of being dependent upon the land and caring for animals is a value that was ingrained in Lisa early on. At four years old, with her pony as her babysitter in the front yard, Lisa’s love for horses was established. She began competing at rodeos at an early age and hasn’t looked back since!
After completing her education with a BS in Elementary Education she joined the workforce as a middle school teacher. As enjoyable as teaching was, she decided that working with horses was a priority and she was eager to focus in that direction.
After meeting her future husband Grady at a rodeo where they were both competing, it soon led into a remarkable partnership of competing professionally as a husband and wife team. With that came three wonderful children, Alyssa, who is now 22, Thane 20, and Cade 17 who also joined the “team”. All three children have also been involved in rodeo as well as the family operation of ranching and training horses in Oelrichs, SD.
Over the years she has been blessed with a successful barrel racing career, saying the most rewarding aspect of it is doing it mostly aboard horses she has trained herself. Having a desire to pass on her knowledge about barrel racing accompanied by the enjoyment of teaching also brought forth the endeavor of teaching at her own barrel racing clinics/schools as well.
Some of her career highlights include:
•14x Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifier (Consecutively)
•2x Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Average Champion
•2x WPRA Reserve World Champion
•2x RFD TV’s “The American” Champion
•4x Canadian World Champion
•2x Calgary Stampede Champion

Cheryl Summer is a Wyoming ranch property broker for Fay Ranches. Having spent her youth on the family dairy farm in the middle of Michigan’s “mitten,” the concept and practice of stewardship were deeply instilled within her. She learned principles she brings to her profession today: You don’t quit and go to the house until all the chores are done until every living thing that depends on you is well cared for, and until everything you are responsible for has been checked off. Rather than being a burden, the early mornings and late nights tending livestock, and planting and harvesting forged a strong bond with family and with the land.

After graduating from National American University in South Dakota, she returned to Montana, where she spent nearly a decade working for Farm Services Agency on conservation, disaster, and farm programs prior to obtaining her real estate license in 1999. Kebi began her real estate career by specializing in the sale of ranch and recreational properties across Montana. In 2016, she expanded her scope of services, earning her license in Wyoming to allow her to assist both buyers and sellers regionally as well as statewide.
