    Anyone else dig playing horseshoes?....recommendations?

    Howdy think tank....

    I really like the game (which I haven't played in decades).
    So...I've been doing some research and finding mixed reviews on several brands.
    Even some shoes breaking in half right away.

    Two popular manufacturers seem to be Boden & Mustang.
    They can be pricey, even approaching a C note.

    Any of you have any recommendations what brand & where to buy?

    (my apology for not incorporating some of my political views)

    Thanks and have a great weekend....

    You know there is a cult of strongmen that bend horseshoes, it’s very technical but the key to bending them is to apply the grip so tight so that the shoe does not have any play in the hands. It really takes a vise like grip to bend them.

    I don’t know where people get them but I’ve guys with crates of shoes I think they buy them from true authentic horseshoe warehouses or farms.

    That’s all I know about horseshoes dude.

    I like the game where you throw a beanbag at the box with the holes in it.

    Had some neighbours years ago from TN....BBQ-smoker, beer, bean bag toss , good times

    Have never played horseshoes much.
    Please record my time/reps if I pass out

    Are you referring to cornhole? (Yes, that is the actual name of the game).
    It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

    My ex wife played horseshoes so I by default have to despise the game. All I know about it is there is something called a kahuna and yes the actual shoes for a horse are much smaller.

    And for reference this is a picture i took this past weekend at Churchill Downs of some horseshoes.

    I played a lot of horseshoes back in the day, it was a fun thing to do at the mess while having a few wobbly pop. I was never very good at it though.

    I also enjoyed bean bag toss (some call it corn hole which meant a totally different thing when we were kids) so I call it bean bag toss

    Lawn darts was another good one

    If it was an outdoor game I was probably all over it..

    Ahh sorry. I thought you meant "real" horse shoes for bending not throwing. This is a BB website you know misunderstandings will happen. I'll butt out of the horse shoe conversation now 🐎 🏋️

    Good morning everyone....

    Cantplankwell....
    Yeah....before we left California we knew some people who played that cornhole game.
    They played in tournaments.
    We didn't participate.

    Karl....
    Yep....that's it.
    Odd name for a game....bad imagery.

    Corbi....
    Oh shvt....sorry if I reminded you of your ex....please accept my apology.

    OS....
    Horseshoes and 'drinkin' some beers goes together like shoes and socks.
    H/S pits do require some prep....sorry your BIL had to cave to here wishes.

    MarkIT....
    Ha....I agree

    MTP....
    Ha...yep....it's fun with the right friends and some 'wobbly pop'.

    OFT....
    "Bending horse shoes"!
    Never heard of it....that would be a competition to witness.

    Thanks everyone....have a great weekend.

    I spent hours in my youth watching the men play horseshoes at family gatherings. Once I got old enough, I began playing. I put in a pit at my house. We have a few acres of land. The pit was a hit at pig roasts and clambakes we used to throw. God, we had fun. I'll never forget my buddy throwing a shoe and my crazy English Bulldog, Brutus, leaped up to catch it. It hit him square on his head and knocked him silly for a bit. Another buddy there was/is a veterinarian. He cleared him with a 'mild concussion,' and the game continued.

    Advice? Use the foil wrapper from a cigarette pack and wrap it around the top of the posts, so you can still see them in the moonlight!

    I'll throw anytime, anyplace.

    Howdy K....

    Ha...holy shvt!

    Quite memorable experiences, I'd guess.
    Glad to see other interest in a cool outdoor activity.

    I'm still pondering the 'pit' process, taking measurements, etc.
    I think I'll have the necessary yard space which is the primary consideration.

    Thanks for stopping by....have a great weekend.

    Cornhole is much easier, no dedicated space, you can just pick up your boards and bags when done.

    That said, there's nothing like the sound of a ringer in shoes, hits that stake and rattles around a bit is very satisfying.

    Yep....it's a rewarding sound when it happens to you.
    Unfortunately, I didn't hear that sound quite often enough.
