Chancelee has been involved in rodeos for 6 years now and has owned horses all her life - her father was a former pro Steer Wrestler. She acquired her horse Missy at ten years of age and worked with her father to train her for barrel racing, pole bending and breakaway roping.
Chancelee has been competing with Missy ever since. Chancelee has won numerous awards from rodeo. In '95 winning the MDA High Point Saddle, and the Kilgore Saddle Club high point overall buckle and the East Texas Horse Show Assoc. High Point buckle.

In '98 she won the Top Liner Champion Barrel Racer and Pole Bender. In '99 placed 3rd in Poles and 4th in barrels at the Lone Star High School Rodeo Assoc. Finals.
In April of '99 Missy was attacked by three dogs taking her off work for at least 3 months.Chancelee borrowed her neighbor's horse and started riding her. The combination really hit it off well and started winning almost every rodeo they went to. The pair competed at the International Finals Youth Rodeo in '99, ending up 21st out of 150 contestants in poles and 25th in barrels out of 147 contestants.
It took a little longer than expected for Missy to recover. She finally came back at the beginning of '00 and she came back strong. Chancelee and Missy placed 2nd in poles and 4th in barrels at the Lone Star High Star Rodeo Assoc. Finals and in the top 15 for the year in Barrels, Poles and Goats. At the IFYR in 2000
