One of the most encountered lucky charms is Horseshoe and its representative in the form of wall hangings, printed images, and jewelry. Originally in Europe, even the worn-out horseshoes were used as magically protective amulets which were hung next to or above the doorways. Some of them are still found nailed onto the barns, stables, and houses. This symbol in various forms has a history of being known as the protective symbol and is common in Egyptian iconography. It is a very auspicious charm used for protection against the evil and to bring good luck. Many people believe that the horseshoe found by chance has much more power than that of a purchased one.

Some people say that the horseshoe must be nailed upwards and this way good luck will pour into your home and one on everyone who walks underneath. Otherwise, your luck might escape.

However, while the blacksmith was nailing them to his feet, the devil was in a lot of pain and asked the blacksmith to remove them. The blacksmith said he would remove them only if devil promised to never enter a place with a horseshoe on it. Thus, making horseshoe symbol a protection against evil and the negative energy.
