Put her in a round pen with a halter on, have he/her go around in a circle a few times each way then have her stop go into the middle and turn away from him/her
Just hang out with your horse and don't always ride everytime you see them. Groom them and give them treats, teach them tricks. Also ground work is the key to a great horse bond :)

In the summer I just go out to where she's in the field and stroke her and try to gain trust of her more! Molly's usually laying down so I lay down with her
I went to this clinic and did a ground class with her. They used a whip and swung it over all the mayjor parts of the horse body until they are comfertable they you switch sides. In the summer I ride my horse with a halter with a long lead rope tied like some reins and a bareback pad and it really helps me trust him and him be more relaxed and trust me more
