Born and raised in Montana, Sophi Davis has a deep love and admiration for agriculture and ranching. Sophi’s grandparents helped build and manage great operations in the late 60’s and early 70’s, including Inverness Land & Cattle and the historic Silvertip Ranch near Yellowstone National Park. With a background in reining and performance horses, Sophi became hooked on the working ranch lifestyle after meeting and marrying her husband Taylor, a fifth generation cattleman. Eventually, they moved to their current position with Lone Star Land & Cattle Co. in Springdale, Montana, a commercial cow-calf operation at the base of the Crazy Mountains. Sophi works alongside Taylor on the ranch and manages the ranch owners’ homes and horses. The couple has two children, Ella (4) and Hunter (2).
Before returning to the ranch full-time, Sophi was Premium Account Manager for Montana Silversmiths (montanasilversmiths.com). She was responsible for developing, cultivating and managing accounts such as Professional Bull Riders, National Rifle Association, John Deere, Cooper Tires, NASCAR, Dude Ranchers’ Association, and Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, as well as representing Montana Silversmiths at events.
Most recently, Sophi was named Fellowship Director for Art of the Cowgirl Fellowship program (artofthecowgirl.com). The Art of the Cowgirl Fellowship Program will encourage, promote and invest in the development of emerging artists and makers engaged in the unique arts, trades, and horsemanship of the western lifestyle while celebrating tradition and inspiring innovation through mentorship from established leaders in their fields. Through this program, Art of the Cowgirl will foster creativity and will work to preserve traditional art techniques and functional gear. Sophi is thrilled to work with all levels of western artists and makers.
When not taking care of calves or kids, Sophi is a writer and photographer, documenting her experiences in ranching and agriculture on her blog, The Montana Cowgirl (themontanacowgirl.com).
