A horseshoe is a type of turnaround maneuver found on roller coasters. The horseshoe is essentially a 180-degree turnaround with high banking so that riders are tilted at a 90-degree angle or more at the top at the element. The horseshoe is named that way because the element is shaped roughly like a horseshoe, with a semicircular shape at the top. The entrance and exit to this element are roughly parallel.
