I would definitely have a chiro rule out any physical issues with her.

Well, she's not my horse, I'm just riding her in lessons, I can make the suggestion about a chiro, but I'm not the owner. Who knows? Perhaps next time it might not be so awkward or clunky. I probably won't post a new video, but I might make a comment about it.

So thanks everyone.

I would ask who ever is helping you if she is flipping leads in the rear and see if they will talk to you about it. Maybe you can speculate about her needing an adjustment during the conversation.
If the owner isn't going to be receptive to the idea or concerned about it, maybe there is someone else there who can watch you guys and say something.
My concern is that something is going on with the mare and 1) she is in pain and that isn't fair to her and 2) you aren't going to be able to learn what you need to learn on her, even though she is being extremely willing, if she is out of wack.

Discussed the observation with my instructor, she said she was switching leads and that we are going to work next time with my pushing her up a little with my hips, should be fun since I have a bad back with some limited mobility, but it's a challenge right?? I haven't loped very many times and it does scare me to a certain degree, I'm still getting my confidence level up so that is a factor. We will be working on body position as well and correcting the horse when she falls out of a lead - I can see lots of stopping and starting here. I give the lady who owns the horse the suggestion about the Chiro and what she does with it is on her head and not mine. This horse had a really really nasty cut on her off side hip this spring, required over 25 stitches, luckily it missed anything vital and important to movement so that is a plus. So thanks again.
