SHARING COMMON PASSIONS OUR LOVE FOR HORSES, THE SPORT, AND GIVING BACK.
“Cowgirl Dina”—a name I inherited from a precious little boy that has forever impacted my life by the name of Ryan Bailey (shown in the picture). I have been involved with horses since the age of 3. My pony would be tied to the front porch when my Dad got home from work and we would ride until the sun came up. That love for horses never went away, competing in high school rodeos, local jackpots, and other events. In 2006 I began producing and promoting team roping events which led to announcing, producing our own barrel races, and later serving as a timer for the last World Barrel Racing Finals Booger Barter produced along with being a part of the Josey Reunion and Jr. World events meeting incredible people along the way. My parents have been a huge part of my “horse habits.” When my Dad saddled up and rode into Heaven on Sept 2, 2010, I focused more on the production side of the events rather than the competition side. I am beyond thankful for everything God has provided in my life. I am blessed with a wonderful mom & stepdad, my Dad in Heaven, my older brother & sister whom I love very much, 5 nieces/nephews, and a great-niece who have my heart completely. A statement made to me from the late 1990 Reserve World Champion Deb Mohon I challenge everyone to use as a guideline is ”To be a champion inside the arena, you must also be a champion outside the arena.” Keep God first in your life and know “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Phil 4:13
The Voice Behind the Mic
Jarred Campbell comes to us from Idabel, Oklahoma. Joining our team in 2021, he is
no stranger to the rodeo industry. He started traveling at an early age playing
music and announcing at both amateur and pro rodeos. When he is not behind
the mic announcing you will find him actively involved in county shows where
he often assists as event auctioneer. Jarred is an active member of local Chamber
activities and also serves as a volunteer firefighter. He loves to hunt, work on their
ranch but his greatest love is for his wife Allison and their precious daughter.
We are super excited to have him as part of the Lucky Lotto team.
He fits right in with the craziness!

Consulting Team Member
I have had a love and passion for horses since I was a little girl. My mom took me to a local rodeo near our home. I remember thinking how big the horses looked and how gorgeous their riders were. That night I fell in love with rodeo. From the age of 9 to 19 I was mostly involved in horse shows and local rodeos winning numerous buckles, saddles and competing in 4-H. My dream was not fulfilled until I met the lady I looked up to all those years, Deb Mohon. Deb taught me how to become a champion in the rodeo arena, a champion not only inside the arena but outside the arena too. After taking a 5 year break, I am slowly making my way back into the life we call barrel racing. When not on horseback, I enjoy traveling and love the beach life. I currently work for a 24/7 Emergency Response company as an outside sales rep cleaning up oil spills and other lines of business. My biggest supporter is my husband Shawn. I do not have children of my own but I am blessed with a beautiful step-daughter. I feel God has blessed me with another opportunity to follow my dreams.
Original Partner of Lucky Lotto Events
Although not actively involved in our events at the present time, she is our “silent” member. The friend that gave the ultimate “push” to promote, obtain sponsors, came up with crazy ideas but was so full of life and creativity. Chancelee Edney, our original team member whom many in our barrel racing family know as the “crazy girl working the holding pen at Josey’s.” Watching her grow from a little tomboy with short hair and a baseball cap into a beautiful person inside and out, we are blessed to have her as a friend. Always laughing, always having fun, and always supporting everyone in any way she can. Growing up, Chancelee was very active in the horse world competing in local horseshows and high school rodeos qualifying for state competition several times. She is married and the mother of two precious boys which keeps her schedule busy. You can find Chancelee at one of the many baseball games or dirt bike races strongly cheering on her boys or dressed in camo hunting with them. Creativity is her strong point. Feel free to check out some of her work through her Facebook page Chancelee Edney Designs. There you will see how she turns pictures into amazing works of art. She is a person that loves God and knows that everything is possible through Him.
