It has always maintained its leadership position, also after horses were only used for sport and recreation,  with the advent of the automobile and tractor. Kerckhaert was the first to respond  to this major change by adapting the product range to fit the needs of sports enthusiasts. This was done not only through research and meeting  specific demands of farriers in many countries, but also by defining product standards, that were widely adopted by other manufacturers in the industry. Today, we are producing nearly 1,500 different Kerckhaert horseshoes and Kerckhaert remains the market leader. </div> <div><br /> </div> <div><strong>Predicate Royal since 2008</strong></div> <div>In 2008, on the occasion of our centenary in 2006, Her Majesty Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands granted our company the predicate Royal. Since then the name of the company was changed to Royal Kerckhaert Horseshoe Factory and the Royal Crown was added to the company logo. The predicate Royal is a distinction that symbolizes the respect, appreciation and trust of the king toward the receiver.  It was granted to about only 150 companies in the Netherlands. </div> <div><img alt="" src="/Images/Blog/crown.jpg" /><br /> </div> <div><br /> </div> <div>Innovation and quality go hand in hand, but they do not simply arise overnight. Decades of experience and technological developments come together at Kerckhaert and offer unparalleled efficiency and flexibility in production. Add to this a combination of patented designs, purpose-developed materials and manufacturing processes as well as a deliberate program for product development and there you have our unique recipe for ongoing success. </div> <div><br /> </div> <div><strong>Liberty Cu – copper coated horseshoe nails </strong></div> <div>Our latest innovation was introduced in 2015: the copper coated Liberty Cu horseshoe nails. Liberty Cu are a major step towards stronger, healthier hooves, in the traditional world of farriery. Liberty Cu do not rust or wear inside the hoof wall and offer  far more protection to the horse than conventional horseshoe nails. This is why we believe the technically advanced Liberty Cu will become the new standard in horseshoe nails very soon. </div> <div><img alt="" src="/Images/Blog/nagels.jpg" /><br /> </div> <div><br /> </div> <div><strong>The winning combination</strong></div> <div>Kerckhaert has been a household  name at the forefront of the equestrian sport for decades. Professional riders do not take any unnecessary risks and around the globe Kerckhaert and Liberty are always the preferred horseshoes and nails, when people prepare for glory. This was seen  again during the Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro.  In our Hall of Fame  you can find which models were the choice of the champions. </div> <div><br /> </div> <div><strong>Prepared for the future</strong></div> <div>Kerckhaert  intends to continue to raise the bar in equestrian sport. We will be introducing more and even better products in the future, to meet the exact needs of farriers and horses around the globe. </div> <div>Although the profession of farriers is often still passed down from generation to generation and taught by experienced farriers, continuous learning and keeping up with modern developments is of the utmost importance to young and old alike.  This is why Kerckhaert organizes regular training days for farriers and often works together with farrier schools and farrier trade associations.</div> <div><br /> </div> <div><strong>The company slogan:</strong> <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Dedicated to excellence at Kerckhaert has a really solid, steel base.</span></div> <div><br /> </div> <div>Please read more and subscribe to the Kerckhaert Newsletter at </div> <div><a href=""><strong></strong></a> and follow us on <a href=" "><strong>Facebook</strong></a></div> ndewitte 12518525-ab77-4919-a346-a9adcbdf3756 Tue, 13 Sep 2016 09:25:07 GMT New @ Liberty Cu New Styles <img alt="" src="" usemap="#Map" style="border-width: 0px; border-style: solid;" /> <map name="Map"> <area shape="rect" coords="118,459,487,545" href="" target="_parent" alt="Liberty Cu - E" /> <area shape="rect" coords="118,558,486,645" href="" target="_parent" alt="Liberty Cu - E SLIM" /> <area shape="rect" coords="118,658,488,702" href="" target="_parent" alt="Liberty Cu - LX" /> </map> ndewitte a77b37af-686b-496a-8bb3-05eaee0a3744 Mon, 30 May 2016 07:46:35 GMT New @ Hypomok <a href="" target="_parent"><img alt="" src="" style="border-width: 0px; border-style: solid;" /></a> ndewitte 51c18b8e-c9bc-42fc-925d-8395710c8ff1 Tue, 03 May 2016 06:52:45 GMT New @ Steel Triumph Motion EU <a href=" Triumph Motion EU" target="_parent"><img alt="" src="" style="border-width: 0px; border-style: solid;" /></a> ndewitte a4e80fb4-635c-4fa5-bda8-d4b385358dcf Thu, 28 Apr 2016 09:00:00 GMT New @ Baldor Grinding Machine <img alt="" src="" usemap="#Map" style="border-width: 0px; border-style: solid;" /> <map name="Map"> <area shape="rect" coords="72,114,533,464" href="" target="_parent" /> <area shape="rect" coords="302,615,532,773" href="" target="_parent" alt="3M Safety Glasses" /> </map> ndewitte e904e267-a839-499b-8af2-289bb249c6e5 Wed, 20 Apr 2016 11:56:41 GMT New @ Fein GWP-10 Tapping Machine <a href="" target="_parent"><img alt="" src="" style="border-width: 0px; border-style: solid;" /></a> ndewitte 987f4519-ebb1-4e2d-8839-c3cc21c534f3 Wed, 20 Apr 2016 11:52:08 GMT War Horse movie: horse shod with Royal Kerckhaert horseshoes <p> War Horse is a 2011 English war drama film directed by Steven Spielberg.
