A leading tack manufacturer for disciplines like barrel racing and roping, Bar H Equine prides itself on making a difference in and out of the competitive arena. The Weatherford, Texas-based company recently put together a team of 15 walkers and runners to participate in the 2014 Race for the Cure event in Fort Worth, Texas.
“We want to show all of our retailers and customers that we don’t just talk the talk, we actually WALK the WALK,” President of Bar H Equine Terri Lynn Howard said. “It feels great to give back, we have been blessed in our life. It is time to share by raising not only money, but awareness.”
In 2012 Bar H Equine announced its Passionately Pink Tack Collection benefitting Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The Passionately Pink line has a special PINK tag that hangs from each piece—the One in Eight Campaign.
“The One in Eight Campaign is a sad statistic that has been engraved in my mind. One in Eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. That is a terrifying number that shows the magnitude of this disease”, Terri Lynn said. “If we can help educate one person to the fact that yearly mammograms are essential, we have done our job.”
Working closely with the Fort Worth area chapter of Susan G. Komen, Terri Lynn agreed to donate a portion of each sale nationally and in Canada to the national foundation. The first donation check for the “Passionately Pink” Collection campaign was presented at “Pink Night” during a special celebration at Cowboyville in Mandalay Bay during the 2012 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
Official Bar H race shirts are available online, and Terri Lynn urges horsemen and -women to help any way they can. For more information on Bar H Equine or the Passionately Pink Collection, also visit www.barhequine.com or follow the company on Facebook.
“I ask anyone and everyone to please join us in support of this wonderful organization,” Terri Lynn said. “From wearing pink on a “PINK NIGHT”, dropping a coin in a jar, attending a gala or walking in an event. Get involved and spread the word.”
