How to Play Horseshoes : What Is the Game of Horseshoes?



Hi! I'm Bruce Arnold and I have been playing
horseshoes for over 10 years and I am here to talk to you about it on behalf of Expert
Village. In this clip, we are going to talk about what do you need to play horseshoes.
First of all, you need two stakes. Your stakes are set 40 feet apart. They are driven into
the ground and they have to be at a particular angle and that is set up prior to them going
in. Usually w3e use a board to get them at the right angle and then fasten them down
and this is a sand pit. There are different types of pits. Some people play in clay, some
people like we have here sand and shell mixed but you can just tear up the dirt around you
and in a backyard it is no problem at all. Any kind of a flat area to play in plus you
need space for your horseshoes because they are going to be an arc and you don't want
anything to block that so you need a clear space. If you've got some trees or something
for shade near the end of the court, near the pit that is pretty good because here in
Florida it gets pretty hot and you've got the sun beating on you. You need four horseshoes;
two for each person and you need two people. You can do it almost anywhere. You can do
it in a court like this with some shade perhaps or you can do it in your backyard with just
plain flat area; two guys and you are ready.
