While some vets are farriers, unless your farrier IS a vet, he/she has no idea of any structural issues the horse may be having and really has no business arbitrarily concluding there is nothing wrong with the horse.
Further to the farrier --- the farrier could be the issue due to poor trimming or shoeing.
The horse needs to be seen by a lameness vet and/or a qualified equine chiropractor. Not all Chiros are created equal, hopefully there is a good one in your area.
The poor horse has issues and is still willing to try and work without bucking you off. IMHO stay off the horse until you get professional help to find the issue(s)
A Good Horseman Doesn't Have To Tell Anyone; The Horse Already Knows.
