The secret of a rich history...

Founded in 1906 by great-grandfather Honoré Kerckhaert, the Royal Kerckhaert Horseshoe Factory is a family business. A company where the passion for the craft has been passed on from father to son for four generations. And over those years, the company has grown into the largest independent horseshoe manufacturer in the world.
