Since as long as we've been human we have sought out a good luck symbol to protect us from all manner of negative influences.
A good luck symbol of any kind is steeped in superstition, and tied to the psyche of mankind. This is because symbols of good luck are symbols of our own hopes, and indications that we are cabable of fearing for our own safety.

Horseshoe is considered a lucky symbol in English custom. It resembles the other symbols associated with good fortune in other cultures such as crescent, half circle or “U”. Crescent or “U” shape is often said to be the symbol of fertility and also possesses power to ward of evil spirit. As it is made of iron for horses, it is also linked to strength and power. As such, combining all these signs of good luck, horseshoe is regarded as a powerful device to bring fortune and repel evil. It is usually nailed to the front door to protect the household from uninvited visitors like witches and evils. However, the horseshoe must be placed in an upright “U” position so that the good fortune will be retained by the household.
