Question Her back right hoof is turned out...corrections?

My mare's right hind hoof is turned out and I am wondering if there are any specific corrections that can be made. When I got her a year ago, she was in a roundpen with about 6 other horses and did not have space to move. I am thinking that is what caused it because she has had it since before I got her. There was no one taking care of her feet (AND HER PREVIOUS OWNER WAS A farrier!) and I think that she may have had her feet trimmed once or twice before myself. Now she gets them trimmed every 2 months regularly and the farrier said that he is slowly correcting it with the way he is trimming, but I am wondering if there is anything specific that I should request him to do to help her. She is barefoot and I do not plan on shawing her until next summer. Anyone got any suggestions? I can give any other information if you need it (previous situations, current, etc). Thanks!?

She seems very uncomfortable and I think that if this can be corrected, her training and riding will also go smoother.

How old is the horse?

What does your vet say?

If our farrier needs to correct a horse, he will trim more often 2-4 weeks in between trims. IF the horse cab be corrected. Your horse could simply be built that way.

She is coming 4 this March.
The Vet looked at her when we purchased her, but he did not say anything was wrong and he gave her a 100% pre-buy vet check.
And my farrier said that it is not a big deal, but really I think that it is effecting her more than he knows.

You have had two professionals examine your horse and you do not trust the information either of them has given?

FYI - it's spelled F A R R I E R.

Two professionals in two different areas of study. I don't think that it necessarily unreasonable to look for another opinion.

I do think that if the farrier is attempting to make a fix here, that he should be out more often than 8 weeks. Pics of both feet and a square shot would help too.

I'd like to see pix of the bottom of her feet as well
