The Spanish government learned of French traders who worked in the region along the Platte and Missouri rivers in the 1720s. Although the horseshoe game is not new in the region, as local clubs host the Nebraska State Tournament, the NHPA (National Horseshoes and Pitchers Association), which sanctions the "Horseshoe Tour," is new to the Midwest. Since most of his events were held in other parts of the state, such as Omaha, Omaha City and Omaha - St. Paul, Nebraska, they felt it necessary to experience this game in Nebraska.
The Horseshoe Tour was launched in 2009 and consists of three divisions: Prime, Open and Open Divisions, and the Open Division Championship. In 2012, the "Open Division" was added, allowing players with the lowest average to participate in the same format as the Prime Divisions, but with restrictions and lower payouts.
