Lordosis is almost always, 100% genetic. Because of this, I don't think this mare should be bred. It is well known in Saddlebreds and a few other breeds. It could be bred out of horses entirely, if nobody would breed such horses.
That said, most with much worse cases than this mare, can be useful riding horses, well into old age.
She's a pretty girl. Just a bit straight in the rear I think and maybe a little clubby in the right rear. I think she should make a nice riding horse for you, for years to come.
Most do ride these horse with saddles, since it distributes the weight more evenly over the back.
