Section C – Delivery of Shoes

1. Delivery – The contestant pitching first shall deliver both shoes (one at a time) and then the other contestant shall deliver both shoes (one at a time). A contestant may deliver the shoes from either the left or right pitching platform, but in any one inning, both shoes must be delivered from the same platform. A contestant shall pitch the entire tournament with the same hand/arm, except in the case of a medical emergency (to be determined by the Tournament/League Officials).
2. Time Limit – A contestant shall deliver both shoes within thirty (30) seconds. This time limitation shall be determined by a judge and will start when the contestant steps onto the pitching platform with the intention of pitching and is in a “set” position for the first pitch.
Exceptions:
(a) Extra time will be allowed to repair a damaged shoe (filing a burr for example).
(b) If a contestant becomes distracted due to unusual playing conditions or by another contestant or spectator, they will not be penalized for this additional time.

Yeah, there really is a set of Official Rules for Horseshoes.

Find them at the National Horseshoe Pitchers Association of America.

Whoda thunk?
