    I would get his feet looked at by another farrier/trimmer. Explain the tripping problem and see if his trim can be altered to help.

    Once you get that straightened out, I agree, walk and trot over poles. Also work under saddle and in hand on the trail, over varying terrain. If you have little hills or ditches around the property, make a point to go over those as well.

    Yes but she mentioned he doesn't trip when he is in the pasture/paddock.

    No, she said he didn't trip while RUNNING in the field or excited. Only when walking (no specification where) or when riding.

    It could be a foot imbalance, a muscle issue higher up, laziness, or a combination. I'd want each possible caused looked out before just assuming laziness.

    A very good way to help if it's simple laziness is to turn out on rough pasture. Meaning there are ditches, inclines, ruts, etc.. Not everyone has that option tho.
