Question A to Z info on collecting,please

My horse was injured for a few months.This past weekend I saddled her up.It has been months but she was good for me(I am a newbee on horse owning and riding and she is a OTTB) My friend basic trained her for pleasure riding and I learn from watching and a few lessons. I want to keep her back strong and learn how to teach her to collect.I have been on outube and have read about it.I would appreciate any info/lesson on how to do this and with language I can understand.Thanks a bunch!

Amerazn, you have to teach a horse to move round and on bit, build all those muscles, and learn to use its back before even thinking about collection (if what you call collection is what I think it is ). My best advice in your situation would be finding a good dressage trainer and start taking lessons. You can't really learn to ride correctly just watching videos, you need a help from the ground to direct you and correct you if something goes wrong.
