Liberty Carrera is an innovative copper coated race nail, that combines a unique, patented neck design with a super slim shaft, which ensures a seamless fit and reduces nail movement. It is excellent for plating race horses with shelly, thin walled hooves and a great alternative to more than 10 different styles and sizes of race nails currently on the market. This makes Liberty Carrera the only type of race nail a race plate farrier needs to carry.

The neck design is standardized to fit in the crease and nail holes regardless of the size of the race plate. The super slim shaft varies in length allowing for use on different hooves.

The copper coating is the new standard in horseshoe nails. It does not rust or wear inside the hoof, for stronger and healthier hooves.
