1.5 LBS – Official Horseshoes!
Now young kids can join in one of America's favorite pastimes. Whether it be pitching horseshoes with family and friends in the backyard, or competitively in leagues and tournaments, these forged steel horseshoes are a must have! At 1½ pounds, Cadet Horseshoes are a full pound lighter than most other steel horseshoes. Cadets are the lightest regulation horseshoe being manufactured in the entire world today! The Cadet Horseshoe is designed with the needs of the younger horseshoe pitchers in mind, but is also great for seniors looking for an alternative to common heavier horseshoes.
The shape and feel of the Cadet resembles the ever-popular, center balanced, Gordon Horseshoe and is conducive for pitching any style; turn or flip. The medium temper is soft enough to resist bounceback, yet hard enough to limit excess dings and burrs. The opening is the full 3½ inches, allowing for the greatest opportunity for success in making ringers.

I bought these for my wife, She has a problem with throwing the regular size shoe because of the weight of the shoes. With the new cadets she is able to toss the shoes with better strength and accuracy. She had quit playing horseshoes but now she is practicing again. With more time with the new cadets I believe she will start throwing in competition again. Thank you Omega for coming up with these new shoes
