Walk fences. Like, 2ft fences are really good to walk for youngsters, thats what my horse does. Just walk towards it, and about a stride or two away, hit her with a crop, and that will encourage her to jump a nd tuck her knees. Also, it is common for youngsters to not jump crossrails and stuff, so she my come around once she goes to verticals, even little 12/18 inch ones.
But ground poles are great too. Just take your time, she probably just doesn't quite understand yet.
