Have you checked the saddle? Maybe the saddle is still causing the pain? If its not the saddle, have you tried lunging her with the saddle on? It will get her use to the saddle being on her back and let her know that it's not going to hurt. Once she is confident lunging with the saddle, practice mounting and dismounting. Make sure you use lots of praise when she is good. The move up to leading someone around while sitting in the saddle, just at a walk. My friends horse went through the same thing and this seemed to help him, good luck :)
