If you are looking for fun group games to play at a barbeque, picnic or other gathering, this Plastic Horseshoe and Ring Toss combo set is the perfect solution. Unlike other plastic horseshoe games, this set also comes with four ring toss rings so you can easily transition from one game to the other without removing any stakes or spending additional time setting up a playing field. Horseshoes and ring toss are easy games to play for adults and kids alike. They are a great activity for a carnival, or in a physical education class. The horseshoe components of this set include two green plastic stakes that measure 13.75 inches long, and four horseshoes that measure 6.5 inches tall and 5.125 inches wide. The horseshoes include one of each green, red, orange and blue. The four red ring toss rings have a 5 inch diameter. Both games within this set are recommended for ages 3 and up. To set up a horseshoe game outside, stakes should be driven into the ground about 40 feet apart and angled slightly towards each other. The stakes should stick out of the ground about 12 inches. When tossing horseshoes, the National Horseshoe Pitchers Association states that the foul line should be 27-37 feet away from the stake. If you want to make a more permanent backyard field by digging a 4-inch deep rectangular pit around each stake, measuring 31 inches wide and 43 inches long. Fill each pit with sand, sawdust or a fine filler substance.
