Not horsin’ around

Carter is horseshoe champion

By Michele Roberts

 The game of horseshoes has a long history, one that can be traced back to ancient Rome. According to the National Horseshoe Pitchers Association, records were not kept in the United States on horseshoe tournaments or competitions until 1909, but it has been established that one of the driving force behind present day horseshoe pitching came from the throwing of mule shoes in Union camps during the Civil War. One Lancaster resident recently demonstrated his skill in the sport July 24 and 25 at the 2013 National Senior Games held in Cleveland, Ohio.
