What are the exact aids you use when asking her to flex? A lot of the time people make the mistake of only pulling on the rein and not giving leg and seat support for the movement.
While holding the outside rein, pull the inside.. this prevents her from just craning her head around and helps her bend from the shoulders. Provide enough leg support to keep her from falling in and have your hips turned at the angle in which you want her bent. Don't make the mistake of just twisting your shoulders, you hips and shoulders must be perfectly aligned, and your hips pointed in the direction/angle you want your horse flexing. It's easier in trot.
