I honestly think that your horse is lame as well, and I also think that this trainer did a phenominal job of making a point to show you where, how, and when he was acting lame. A lot of people (even vets in my experience) will blab on and on about how an animal is lame and hurt, but can't tell you where or why. This man not only showed you, he explained it fairly well too.
Even with as grainy of a video of this, I was able to see all of the things that he was pointing out. We have a saddlebred mare who overreaches as your gelding does, but not so significantly and she doesn't have that pause or hesitance when moving that he displays either.
I would go as far as saying that he's had some lameness issues for quite some times now- perhaps even years, and thats why you aren't noticing it. When we're around someone constantly, its easy to not really see it. Theres something there though, and if you want him to be productive for a long time, I'd advise in having a specialist, or even a chiropractor out for him.
