Four generations of the Kerckhaert family have combined practical experience with advanced technology to manufacture consistent, high quality horseshoes - offering a wide variety of shoe styles designed to meet the demands of the industry. Kerckhaert began by developing the shoe designs that best suited the various uses of the horse and then built state-of-the-art machinery to make the shoes to their demanding specifications.
The result? Horseshoes shaped, punched and finished to suit the purpose for which they were intended. Better material and design makes for better-finished work.

Only about 150 companies in the Netherlands are currently entitled to use the prestigious title, “by Royal Warrant." In 2006, when the Kerckhaert company was 100 years old, Kerckhaert was inspected by the local and national governments. As a result of this, Kerckhaert was extremely honoured to receive the “by Royal Warrant” in July 2008.
Of course, this prestigious award is the result of many years hard work by the different generations of the Kerckhaert family, supported by friends, together with the worldwide network of Kerckhaert dealers and the professional farriers who choose Kerckhaert horseshoes above all others.
The Kerckhaert family thank you all. All “Royal Warrant” enterprises are allowed to incorporate a crown in their logo. As you will have already noticed, the Kerckhaert logo has changed to incorporate this. Kerckhaert is proud to have earned this rare and prestigious title.
