The only race nail you need

How many times have you plated a race horse with shelly, thin walled hooves and wished you had a thinner nail with a strong neck and a head that fitted seamlessly into the racing plate crease?


    • Unique, patented neck design

    • Fits seamlessly into the race plate crease and  nail holes, regardless of the size

    • Super slim shaft, reduces wall damage

    • Reduces nail movement, no breakage

    • Made from hi-tech steel, for greater strength

    • Easy clinching


Carrera nails  
Liberty Carrera comines a standardized, solid neck design with a super slim shaft

The nail is available in three different lengths. This means you do not have to use a larger nail, if you need the extra length.

Available: small - medium - long

CARRERA secure 


Carrera Secure has the same unique features as all Carrera nails. The nail head is wider, for less wear. 

    • The large nail head adds wear to your race plate

    • There is just enough space between nails, so you can remove them easily

Available: medium - long

Carrera Replaces 

Carrera or Carrera Cu? - You Choose

Liberty Carrera horseshoe nails are available both as traditional (steel) and with the additional option of Copper (Cu) Shield Technology™.

Liberty nails that are made with Cu Shield Technology™ have the added benefit that they do not rust or wear inside the hoof and when used on a daily basis hoof wall, white line and sole are stronger and healthier. In 2016 two independent studies on Liberty Cu horseshoe nails have confirmed these benefits.
