Love the hard rubber horse shoes. Looked for them for a long time. Am a bit disappointed in the stakes as they are plastic and not wood as I had hoped.

I recently built horseshoe pits in my back yard. I stained wooden planks and made an elevated pitching box. It looks nice, however using real steel horseshoes would only ding up the wood I worked so hard one constructing. Then I came across these rubber horseshoes.

I'm happy with these shoes as far as what I intend to use them for. They're hard rubber and will not ding up the wood or break any nearby windows. You also don't have to worry about small children wandering around close by as you're playing and someone being hit. It won't give someone a concussion should you actually hit them square in the face but it is hard rubber after all so you should still be careful.

With that though, they are a bit lighter in weight than the steel ones of course. It's just something you'll have to get used to throwing if you've been using real shoes previously. My main gripe is with the stakes, they're cheap plastic dollar store brand stakes that will not last with normal use. Because of that, this package as a whole is not worth $25 even with free shipping using Prime. At best, it should be no more than $15, if the stakes were made of the same material as the horse shoes, $20 is acceptable. All I really intended to use were the horse shoes but had I intended to use the stakes too, I would have been extremely disappointed. For me personally and my situation, the Pros outweigh the Cons.

Pros
-Durable hard rubber horseshoes will not damage wood, grass, windows, etc.
-Safe for all ages.
-Can be taken anywhere(beach, camping, family BBQ)
-Will not rust like steel shoes.

Cons
-Lighter than real shoes. Throwing takes some getting used to.
-Stakes are cheap and flimsy.

My 5-year-old son can't throw the metal horseshoes very well, but he can sure throw these ones. We only used these once this Fall, but we had a good time together. ...and once the *explicative* weather gets warmer come next Spring, we will use them much more. As you can probably tell, I really HATE cold weather! "Hunny? Can we move to Arizon??"

I looked high and low to find a set of horseshoes that my grandson could play with as well as his dad and I. Found these 100% rubber shoes and bought them. The shoes are great, they feel like real shoes and are made to look like the authentic steel horseshoes made for this game. They are much heavier than the molded plastic shoes and very resilient. The plastic post or pegs are a little lacking but we replaced them with 1" pipe very easily and cheaply as we used used pipe. Would highly recommend for a backyard toy that will last and offer fun for the entire family. PS..we set our pegs at 30 feet, not the normal 40 feet that the steel horseshoes require. The shoes are a little light for 40 feet but will work that way also. It was just a little far for my 4 year old grandson to toss them.

The horseshoes are made of heavy plastic and can be tossed with ease. However, the "spikes" are thin plastic and are hard to drive into the ground without deforming them. We had to dig a hole, put the spike in the ground, and fill the dirt back in around it. These are fine for camping trips when you need to keep yourself occupied during down times, but if you are looking for a more professional kit, I would recommend something else.

I bought this set while looking for outdoor games for my guests to play for our wedding. If you wanted a horseshoes game for the kiddos to play then I think this would be okay. However, you'd probably still have to find different stakes to use, they wouldn't last long I can assure you. The description says that the shoes are rubber when they really feel like a heavier plastic to me. As far as the product goes, like I said, I'd give it a 3 for kids. For adults however this is not the set you want. And I give it a single star because of the price for the quality. I received my refund very promptly and the return process wasn't too bad.

This is the perfect game for your next backyard BBQ party. I set it up on my lawn whenever I have a bunch of people over in the backyard and it is always popular. Kids and grown ups love it alike. I couldn't have asked for better for the price I paid. Of course, if you play horseshoe professionally (if there is such a thing), you may want to look into a steel set.

On the downside, I dinged one point because the color of the horseshoes is fading already (after using it a handful of times). Of course, the color does not impact the fun factor :)

The shoes with this set are very heavy and would still hurt if hit with them, but nothing like a metal shoe. The spikes really could have used a bit more work, but they are easy to replace with a pipe or rebar. all in all a nice set for little people or even drunks you don't want hurting each other.

We will be enjoying this all year round. Great for barbeques and such. I was glad to get a gift I knew the kids would have to go OUTSIDE to enjoy. We have only used it a couple of times so far but the kids like it, so it will see plenty of time in the sun.

At family functions, while the adults throw the real shoes, this rubber horseshoe set allows the younger grandkids to do likewise. They've really enjoyed playing the same game as the adults. Great Product.
