Loping in a frame is a lot of work, so it could be he's just not strong enough to hold that frame yet. Ya, I second the PP about the roll back and lope off. It will remind him to be on his hocks and increase his strength, too. If you keep at it, as he gets stronger he'll gradually add more strides in proper frame as he gets stronger and more balanced.
Good luck, that horse is a real looker!
