Better, but he still has a very long toe, low heel foot. He needs different farrier care, and I bet part of your problem goes away. However, his conformation and those hooves would make me want to rule out navicular still if he continues stumbling or seems hesitant in front at all. Long toes are really problematic for navicular-prone horses (like most QH's) so it's something you'll want to address. Asking him to carry himself properly with hooves like that has got to be uncomfortable for him.
