Fay Ranches Sponsors Lisa Lockhart at the NFR, American Barrel Racer
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
