Dear "Ti", thanks for the advice! I printed out your post, am going to ask
my farrier to trim as you suggest. I am blessed (cursed?) with a horse whose
hooves grow as fast as my farrier can trim them and sometimes wonder if this
isn't in itself the problem--! At least he always has plenty of hoof for his
frequent resets!

<< My arab David ("A King David") also tends to forge at the trot. He is
backed and long legged. Short cannons, relatively long shoulder, medium
forearm, long from elbow to knee. I am hoping that dressage work will
help--he has never pulled a shoe, he HAS injured the bulb of his hoof by
stepping on it but that was when he was very green and unused to carrying a
rider. >>

The very best solution to forging is to raise the angles in front, lower
behind (speed up the front and slow down the hind. >>
