The lucky horseshoe used actually having been fixed to a horse's hoof, this 4" horseshoe has been known for centuries as a powerful token of good luck. Hang it above the door of your business or home to bring good luck to all within it. The horseshoe superstition is one of good luck and good fortune. It is believed that the good luck powers of the horseshoe date back to the story of a blacksmith named Dunstan and a man he believed was the devil. It is said that a man came to Dunstan and requested that he put horseshoes on his feet (hoofs). Dunstan recognized this man as the devil and nailed a horseshoe to the devil's hoof. Seeing that the devil was in great pain, it is said that he chained him while he was in agony and only released him after the devil promised never to enter a place that had a horseshoe hung over the door. Dunstan eventually became the Archbishop of Canterbury in 959 AD and is known as Saint Dunstan. The way the horseshoe is hung and displayed varies.
