corrective trimming

Hi guys, I trim my own horse (I have been shown by a barefoot trimmer) he has seen another trimmer a few times in the past year but I am not at all happy with his work, and feel that I can do a better job, he hasn't bruised and his sound so I figure I'm doing pretty good!

Anyway, the thing is his front right foot is growing funky, flaring off to the outside and straighter than his other hoof on the inside, and looks kind of crooked like the stripes on his hooves are a little diagonal, from this other he's been seeing my horse while I've been away for 5 months.. I'm wondering how do I go about fixing it, it being a balance problem, do I rasp off the flair and continue to rasp off the bottom more on the left or right? I think I know what to do but I just want to make sure before I go about it.

Will get pictures later if needed

You will need to get those pictures - without "seeing" what is going on, it would be difficult for anyone to give sound advice. It may also be that what you think is going on will not be what others see - thus the advice they would offer after seeing pictuers would differ from what they would give from your description/diagnosis.
I would definitely review the posts on taking good pictures for hoof critique/suggestions and then get those posted so you can get some feedback.
