Strange hind hoof

There's a mare at my barn with one of her hind toes tipped very slightly outwards along with her pastern slightly tilted, when she trots her good hoof lands straight in the hoofprint of her front hoof, but the tilted one lands far to the inside of the hoofprint in front of it. She is a lesson horse but i don't feel like i should point it out because it's not my place. I was thinking maybe it was some kind of rotation in the hoof, but it could just be a conformation fault. I know her rider mentioned that her trainer was having trouble getting her to canter on the left lead whereas she was fine before. Weird.

I would ask the owner if there was something wrong with her foot. Tell them it looks tilted to you. They may not have noticed,

I don't break horses, I FIX them!

Could be from an old injury, or she was just born that way.

The owner says she doesn't know, im guessing maybe old injury since her other hoof is normal.
