Innovative uncompromising hoof nails

Liberty’s passion for change and challenging the standards is evidenced in the ability to see new possibilities. Always with the main focus on durability, ease and health for both horse and farrier.

The game changer in wear controle

Liberty HardTop Technology

Could you imagine there was a nail that was sharp, precise, drives fl uently, clenches strongly and not to mention has a hardened nail head that slows down the wear process.


Liberty HardTop Technology is a perfect example of how to make a nail durable. It features the nail production process to harden the nail head locally. This prevents the nail to wear down too quickly, prolonging the durability of the shoeing, unlike traditional nails when used on harder surfaces.

the pioneer of copper nails

Liberty Cu Shield Technology

Pfff no way you can make a nail healthier for a horse.


Cu Shield Technology Another example of how Liberty dares to push the limits. Liberty created a unique technology that adds copper to a nail. This creates an unlivable environment for bacterial growth in the nail hole, which helps to  keep the hoof strong and healthy.

Making the job easy with top results

Liberty Hybrid & Carrera

You’ve got to be kidding!
I can replace more than 30 di erent nails with only 6 nails?


Hybrid and Carrera nails are examples of how Liberty focuses on making the job easier for the farrier. No need for overstocking the van with boxes. Hybrid is your all-round nail while Carrera is designed for ease of shoeing race horses.

What Liberty users experience

Peter has been using Liberty CU hoof nails from the start and sees only benefits from them.
I see a huge difference in maintaining and preserving healthy hooves. It is a much healthier way of working and prevents infections. When taking the shoe off, you can still see that the copper is actively present.'

Peter Peers

Farrier | United Kingdom

Derek is a big fan of the Liberty Carrera Secure and uses the Cu variant of the nail. 
'It is a great nail. It nails perfectly and it doesn't move. I use the Cu nail, because I am convinced that if you can do something to eliminate a problem, you use it. If it saves one horse out of thousand, it is worth the use.'

Ed likes to use the Liberty FJ1 horseshoe nail:
"My favourite nail is the Liberty FJ1 as it's a small nail which is very strong and drives up the hoof accurately."
