Liberty Carrera race nails

How many times have you plated a reace 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?


Liberty Carrera

The Liberty Carrera racing nails are designed with a unique neck design and super slim blade. The neck is characterised by its wider standard size that fits perfectly in the crease and nail holes of the Kerckhaert race plates, regardless of the size. In addition, the super slim blade ensures that the nail can be used very smoothly with minimal damage. The Carrera nails are available in three lengths. The nail also allows for very strong shoeing and clinching well. Made from high-quality steel for optimum strength, these nails feature the signature firm and sharp Liberty point with a precise bevel. This way you can guide the nail out in exactly the right place.
