Does anyone know the demensions on horse shoe throwing pits?? I know the distance and 6 x 6 around . What I am looking for is dimensions of the boxes that are built around the pole.
I have not thrown in years but we used to throw at the firemans training center and they had sand boxes built around them. I want to do that in my yard. any ideas or am i crazy??

We just built 'em in my brothers back yard. Are you shooting for the olympics or just wanting to throw some 'shoes. We cut a piece of railroad tie for a backboard and sand. All you have to do is fire up the grill and aim high on the stake.
