It may be that you are "holding" her in a frame when she is moving forward, and she is relying on your hand to hold her, then during the transition, you are in some way changing your hand, which causes her to loose the "crutch" and struggle for her balance, until you get her back on your hand.
It might mean that she is not carrying herself to begin with. You might try riding her in the various gaits and see what happens when you give her the inside rein, like a huge loop in it. Can she keep the soft bend in the poll or will she throw her head out and fall forward. If it's the latter, then she is leaning too hard on the bit to begin with and your job will be to work on getting her to respect the bit as a "guide" but not as a ledge on which to hang her head.
If you would like to post a video we might be able to see what's going on.
