Runway in good condition. Fairly narrow main lading area with with brushy overrun on both sides. Winds are always interesting at Horseshoe.

The runway is getting a little overgrown. The surface area of the strip and the edges is about the same consistency…a little soft. A work party here would be a good thing to knock out some of the brush and put a sock up.

Small two track road. South end is pretty good with softer dirt. The north end has some big ruts that will cause damage. Plan to overfly and scope conditions and land on the south portion. I rolled tires to feel the dirt quality and it seemed softer but landable.

Runway in good shape after all the recent rains. Northern 1/4 of runway looks to have a rut along the western side but there is plenty of room on the southern end and the runway is fine.
