That's a Ringer, Mr. President

The first President Bush and Harry Truman enjoyed pitching horseshoes. Harry Truman created a horsehoe pitch just off the Oval Office, but it was removed later (probably for Eisenhower's putting green).

George HW Bush added a new one next to the Swimming Pool and even pursueded world leaders to toss a few horseshoes.
