I know her left leg is a bit funky shaped near the looks turned out a bit and the hoof is always a bit swooped even with trims..I call it her crooked leg.

I have no idea what it would be from.. it could be an injury, I honestly don't know. All I see is that she's off, and I would bet it's on her outside (in that video, so her right) hind. Could be both hinds, though, she's moving quite stiff.
It might be worth getting a vet out to do a flexion test to see, especially if you feel that she's off on a regular basis.

I would personally prefer to get a vet's opinion.

Can you tell me why that is?

A vet is more qualified when it comes to diagnosing and a treatment plan. A chiro can give you an idea of whats wrong but they specialize in more muscle type treatment. A vet can tell you for sure whats wrong.

Exactly what Liz (Dressage10135) said. A vet is qualified to diagnose. Not saying Chiros don't have a place - they absolutely do - but in this instance, where a problem is detected, you want the best, the most qualified person possible, to come out and diagnose the problem.

I see it now. She's definitely short-striding.

My coach has a lot of experience with lameness and chiropractic work(she's in school for a massage degree, too), so I can ask her if she can at least try to pinpoint the location so you have an idea of what to ask the vet.

But I agree, I'd get a lameness exam done.

Okay,I will have my vet come out or walk her over to the vet's house since they are right by me.

They said she had an attidude issue with them last time they were out..anyways...I will have them out to check...I will also have them check my saddle and go from there. Thanks poor horse. I just wish I could figure out the issue as I have been struggling with this for a year now.
