I've got this problem with Magic. He has the nicest trot but the smoothest gait. So I've started to teach him by ques to which one I'd like.
To get your horse to gait you might need to get her to round out her neck, drop her head, get her to tuck it in (it's the only way I can explain it). She can't gait with a hollowed back, besides the fact that it's bad for their backs :p
Try making her half halt at a walk, tighten one rein just a little bit, and lightly apply pressure on and off to the other, when she lowers her head immediately release all the pressure (this is her reward!).
Once she gets good at this then try it at a trot and so forth.
I hope this helps you out! If it doesn't then look it all up on google, you might some really helpful stuff out there.
