Horseshoe Sets with Stakes
Note: if you're looking at sets elsewhere, be aware that most sets you buy do not come with official stakes. If they are not 1-inch diameter stakes, they are not official stakes. Most backyard sets on the market come with 3/4-inch diameter stakes and they are usually only 24 inches long. The official rules call for a 1-inch diameter stake 14 to 15 inches high. On one of those cheapo stakes, that only leaves you 9 inches in the ground... With less than half the stake in the ground, how many times can you hit that before you knock it over? Answer: not very many! Our stakes hold up pretty well in normal ground and they won't go anywhere if you use a permanent mounting option.
