You may find it easier, when you have a horse with considerably large feet, to rest his front feet between your knees and clamp it there firmly. this gives you more grip and you will find it much easier to pick it out.
with hind feet, pull his foot out to the side slightly and back, rest it on your inside thigh, keeping your back as straight as possible and your knees bent, a well mannered horse will allow you to do this with no qualms. it also saves your back
