Interested in pitching horseshoes?
Come join us! The sport of horseshoe pitching is something to be enjoyed by everyone!
We are a family sport! It doesn't make any difference if you are skilled horseshoe
tosser or a complete beginner who is just looking to get started in the sport,
horseshoes can be competitive and fun for all.
It's fun! It can be a personal challenge to climb the ranks and increase your skill!
It's good exercise and you won't find a better group of people to associate and
compete with than horseshoe pitchers!
Here in Kentucky we have fun each Saturday from May through September pitching
horseshoes around the state. Each player is placed in class of their own skill level at
each event depending on their ringer percentage. A new player's percentage is
established by pitching a qualifying round of 100 shoes. The number of ringers from
the 100 shoes pitched will determine your percentage and class placement.
We pitch a round robin format. Each Class will be comprised of 9 players or less.
