The game of horseshoes dates back as far as the Roman Empire. It has changed slightly since then, but is still one of the few sports you can enjoy almost anywhere, including your own backyard. This game is an international sport which is played almost everywhere in the world. You can enjoy playing by yourself or with more people. All you need is horseshoes and two stakes, which are located 30 to 40 feet apart. The object of the game is to get your horseshoes closer to the stake than your opponent's.
