The Best Sands for your Horseshoe Pit

Horseshoe Pits can contain loose dirt, clay, or synthetic compositions, but sand is still the most common material used. At Jurassic Sands we pride ourselves on having the cleanest, purest, all-natural sands. Our sands have no dust or dyes and we never crush or pulverize rocks to create our sands. Our sands are found naturally in deserts around the United States and take eons to make from natural erosion. Because of this natural process our sands don't have nuisance dust, so when your shoe lands in the pit it won't be followed by a plume of dust. And our sands won't stick to your horseshoe or your hands.

We know how hard you worked making your horseshoe pit perfect, and the last thing you want to do is have your horseshoe pit lose its lure due to dusty, low quality sand. Our sands help you create a centerpiece for your back yard. We have three amazing sands that are perfect for any horseshoe pit.

Golden Cambrian Pit Sand is a naturally-colored sand that is so smooth you’ll find yourself more relaxed as you hit ringer after ringer, because your secret weapon is this amazing sand. This sand has no dust to upset your allergies or asthma, and no dirt, so you’ll be as clean when you finish a game as when you started. Our all-natural sand takes eons to make and we don’t rush that process by crushing or pulverizing rocks to make our sand. Other pit sands use gravel and dyes and chemicals to color their sand and pulverize rocks which leads to a dusty, dirty, and coarse sand and gravel in your horseshoe pit. This sand is perfect for horseshoes and won’t ever lose its color, even if left outside. Imagine after a long day of work and car pooling, unwinding with your personal all-natural sand pit filled with this soft, earthy colored sand. You'll never have to replace this sand.

Vanilla Shore Pit Sand is an incredible sand that you have to see and feel to believe. With a mesmerizing texture, you’ll find yourself spending hours on end in your one-of-a-kind horseshoe pit. No worries about it sticking to the horseshoe or your hands. Our competitors make their white sands by crushing and pulverizing rocks, which results in nuisance dust and sand with coarse sharp grains. Some even dye or paint sand with chemicals to achieve the white color. Safety is our top priority and we never would pulverize, paint or dye any of our sands. Our sand are made from minerals provided by Mother Nature.
