Running Bear Tack Special Sales for the Endurance Rider

Running Bear Tack

Own a piece of Endurance History while helping an old friend and  Endurance Legend, Teddy Lancaster.

Running Bear Tack, ring a bell?
I’m sure many of you remember Running Bear Tack and Teddy Lancaster, our long time friend and supporter of all things involving endurance riding and horse care. Teddy brought her big trailer full of horse and rider supplies to events across the country. She quickly shared her time, tack, and enthusiasm with so many of us over the decades. She loved to gab and to offer her advice, encouragement, and good humor.

Now Teddy can use our help. In 2019, Teddy’s dementia reached a point where she needed more specialized medical assistance. She is living in an assisted living facility near her home in Central Florida. Ed Paige, Teddy’s longtime companion, is nearby and closely watches over her care.

I’m sure most of you were unaware that fulfilled Teddy’s Running Bear Tack orders while she was moving from NC to her new home in Florida. Parry Harness & Tack, established in 1978, and Running Bear Tack, started not long after, were the first tack manufacturers to introduce Biothane to the equine industry.  As friends and colleagues, each with our own style and following, we attended many of the same shows. I am thankful for her being a part of my life and hope that we horse friends can help her now when she needs us.

I have collected the last remaining Running Bear Tack to clean, catalog, and sell to benefit Teddy. This consists of the remaining inventory from her tack truck (which she sold).

Those in our circle support each other in so many ways. If you please, help by sharing this post addressed to all of our friends and customers whose passion is horses.  Whether that be the sport of Endurance, Distance, Ride & Tie, or Trail riding, the impact of World and National events has taken its toll on us all. We hope that this finds you and your families safe and out of harm’s way. May God bless us all.

These are all NEW items that traveled with her from ride to ride or were in the making from her shop. I’ll be listing them for sale as I clean, replace keepers, and photograph. These items include biothane tack and parts, gloves, stirrups, girths, saddlebags, helmets, etc.

I’ll make sets of Bridles, Breastplate & Reins first. In some instances, there are different types of Bridles (Halter Bridles, Trail Bridles, with and without Brows, Noses, or padding) that match a breastplate or rein set.   Please feel free to ask for a specific Bridle, Breastplate, or Rein style, or color-combination that I’ll post next.  I’ll try to do the auction option with a BUY IT NOW option and/or list for sale. No reasonable offer refused.
Shipping via USPS Priority 2-3 day usually runs $8 – $15, depending on box or envelope.
Let’s help Teddy and get these sold!

Some listings will be by auction and some by direct sale.
