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 :)
