Did you know the Royal Kerckhaert Horseshoe Factory has changed the way we are shoeing our horses on a daily basis?

In 2015 the Royal Kerckhaert Horseshoe Factory created a sensation amongst farriers when we first introduced our unique, innovative Liberty Cu horseshoe nails, that were especially designed to benefit the horse.

Liberty Cu horseshoe nails are a major step towards healthier hooves in the traditional world of farriery. Liberty Cu horseshoe nails have outdated the rest, because they are the first horseshoe nails in 1000 years which do more than hold the horseshoe on.

Liberty Cu horseshoe nails are made with Copper (Cu) Shield Technology™. This provides much more protection than traditional horseshoe nails.

Hoof wall, white line and sole are stronger and healthier, when used on a daily basis

In 2016 two independent studies on Liberty Cu horseshoe nails have confirmed these benefits.

Cu Shield Technology™ is unique to Kerckhaert.


  • Better than traditional nails
  • No rust or wear inside the hoof
  • Better hoof / horn quality
  • Less damage to the hoof wall
  • Works the entire shoeing cycle
  • The only nail made with Cu Shield Technology™


NEW IN 2017

The same technology that was first developed for Liberty Cu horseshoe nails is now also used on the Super Sound Cu® race plates. This offers extra protection, especially to the weight bearing edge of the hoof and the white line area.

Please order Liberty Cu nails or Super Sound Cu® race plates at your Kerckhaert dealer.
