Back in America's Wild West days, cowboys used any means available to prevent their horses from being stolen. According to legend, one resourceful cowboy had the idea of rigging horseshoes to work as a lock, which served as the origin of this puzzle.

3 out of 5 stars
I just got it for Christmas from my sister. It took me a little time to solve it (I expected to solve it faster and I already got an idea for the solution, which was eventually correct, but I had to be careful on the path in order to succeed). I like the trick and for quite some time I did not understand it, although I have many other Hanayama puzzles with rating higher than this puzzle's. A true puzzler which can require some logical thinking, too.
I like the trick to solving this puzzle. In fact, it reminded me of a magic trick - it really does seem like solid passes through solid. Of all the level 2 Hanayama puzzles, I solved this one the fastest. Once you know the move, there's no real replay value, but I am looking forward to stumping my friends with this one.
i like it but when my dad bought it he tried solving it first i didnt even try it out and he broke it and its olny lvl 2 and he broke
Great puzzle....Great quality....
A classic design and very well made. This puzzle isn't too hard and my kids love it. My son (age 8) stumps some of his friends with this puzzle. He got it apart in 30 seconds, took him longer to get it back together!
