I agree with this, simply for the reason that your horse's biomechanics are dictating (trying to tell you how to shoe him), but the farrier isn't listening.
 
Sometimes, farriers remove just too much front hoof heel and not enough of the rear hoof heal, changing the timing of the front and rear hooves' loading and unloading.
