Rules of Horseshoes
Men: Pitch from 40 feet.
Women, Juniors under 18 yrs, and Elders over 70yrs pitch from 30 feet.
Junior Cadets: Under 9 years old pitch from 20 feet and can use lightweight shoes. The Glory GXL (extra light) is the lightest full size shoe at 1 lb 14oz. Another option for a full size cast shoe is the Pony by Thoroughbred. It is a professional lightweight shoe perfect for seniors, juniors and ladies or anyone looking for a lighter weight shoe! The Pony horseshoe is unique on the pro tournament circuit. It is the only pro style horseshoe that is made lighter without losing the great balance and design features of the professional horseshoe. This is a full size horseshoe that is modeled after the Ted Allen style shoe. The weight of this shoe is about 2lbs. 5 oz. compared to the average weight of tournament shoes of 2 lbs. 8 oz. to 2lbs. 10 oz.
