Steel Horseshoe Stakes (One Pair)- Official Size
Free Ground Shipping*
*Additional shipping fees may occur on orders sent to AK or HI
First, these stakes are sold in pairs, so when entering a quantity of one in the cart, you are getting one pair (two stakes total). Our horseshoe stakes are 1-inch in diameter by 30 inches in length. This is the official stake diameter for NHPA Sanctioned Tournament Play, which is a bigger diameter than most backyard sets that provide only the cheaper and shorter, 3/4 inch diameter by 24 inch long stakes. The extra length really helps them hold tight in solid ground. These stakes are made from precision cold rolled steel. They are blunt at both ends, making them ideal for permanent mounting in either a short section of railroad tie or in concrete. We deburr the ends for easy and safe handling. They can also be pounded directly into solid ground with ease for a temporary setup and will hold in place even longer than pointed stakes. When purchasing any of our products that include these stakes, you’ll receive a complimentary Horseshoe Handbook that outlines the basic installation methods… some very handy information! Remember, horseshoe stakes are not straight up and down. They angle towards each other on a 12 degree lean. If you have any questions about this, call us directly at 814-835-6881 for help. Helpful hint… When in temporary use, it helps to paint just the top half of the stake white or a bright color (spray paint works fine). Then, when you’re tapping the stake into the ground, just tap it down to the paint line and stop… no measuring required now, as that’s takes it down to the exact specified height for sanctioned play!
