I'm also seeing a train wreck. Classic forward foot syndrome with imbalances.
Sad that this horse was owned by people who didn't realize the importance of good hoof handling behaviour and that might be the reason for the poor farrier work. If the horse won't cooperate, it makes it pretty hard to perform good work.
Aside from treating for any infection, I would say high heels are tipping weight on to that toe, thus causing the crack to continue.
