The use of a horseshoe as a symbol of good luck dates back to early times when horses played an integral part in the life of many people. This importance is demonstrated by an ancient Turkish proverb: “A nail can save a horseshoe, a horseshoe a horse, a horse can save a horse rider, and a horse rider can save a country.”
New Year is regarded as the best time to put up a horseshoe (for example above the front door). It is also believed that in order for a horseshoe to collect and store good luck, it needs to be positioned with the ends poin-ting upwards. If the ends point downwards however, luck will simply leak out!
