This horseshoe court was designed to be rugged, so it would withstand years of fun. It was constructed with salvaged railroad ties which will withstand almost anything you throw at them (including thousands of metal horseshoes!). The court is laid out according to official guidelines, but the overall design is much more subtle. The sand for the pit is a blue/gray screening from crushed granite and was a nice alternative to the typical stark white play sand. The stakes are pitched at 12º and are 40ft apart. This subtle, contemporary court will look great long into the future.
