    What discipline of riding are you doing with Lexis?

    I would suggest lunging and definitely using voice commands while lunging.

    If she has never engaged her hindquarters before and is just learning you are going to have to teach her. I would suggest lunging with some side reins to teach her a good frame. These two go hand in hand. When I horse accepts the bit and frames up the hindquarters will follow.

    If youve never used side reins before though be careful not to have them too tight. Give her her head at first and as she muscles up and learns you can slowly tighten the reins.

    That's what I would do anyways :) you can work on your voice commands as you are doing this :)

    I would also reckonmend lunging, as you can assess lexi's movements on the ground. Side reins, and a lunging whip should help. Just remember its not about speed, its about the extensions and elevation.

    Im assuming you do english/dressage riding. I would be doing alot of 10m circles, asking her to cross her back legs and while her front is not moving much.

    It may also be pain related? Bowen or chiro may be a solution.
    Goodluck
