Yes, a hard situation. She might find someone good for him via a 'barefoot' site - someone with experience in rehab that won't necessarily think of 'navicular' as the end of the world.

My girl Merlot was very lame with Navicular disease (she was xrayed positive) when I got her a year ago. Her hooves were terrible - very long in the heel.
Within 3 months of correct BAREFOOT trimming all lameness had gone. Now she sprints around the paddock - just floating - NO ISSUE with navicular at all and all this was achieved simply through the trimming.
Totally agree with those of you who recommend Pete Ramey, or Dr Bowker. There is a great article about navicular here
Navicular Disease - Information about Navicular Disease
And also Pete Ramey's article here
I include some pics of (the pregnant) Merlot zooming around pain free...
Hope this helps
