A raised and swinging back comes from active, engaged hind legs and a relaxed body. It does take a long time to develop in a horse that doesn't have a naturally good back, and you need to be a good enough rider to feel when the back is working and when it is not, and what to do when it is not.
I cannot recommend a trainer highly enough. If you genuinely want to learn some solid dressage foundations, you really need someone on the ground that knows what they're doing and what they're looking at. If it was as simple as learning by reading on the Internet everyone would be a grand Prix rider.
