When analyzing your release, try to release the horseshoes at chest
height. If you are on the smaller size you might want to release just a
little bit higher. This can get your arcs just right and start hitting the
stake 80% of the time. What you are doing here is getting the perfect
alignment and perfect height. With alot of practice and focus you can
start landing those ringers for 80% of your throws.
When practicing it is important to practice like it counts. If you
practice too relaxed then you are going to play too relaxed. If you do not
give 100% focus and attention to your goals when practicing, then you are
not going to do it when it counts either. Imagine every throw being the
deciding factor in a world championship title match. Put the pressure on
yourself. All the mistakes you make in practice due to lack of
concentration will form bad habits. These mistakes will come back to haunt
you in competition play.
