Play with her. It doesn't matter what your doing. As long as it's a positive experience for both of you it will strengthen your bond.
Do a lot of ground work. Do different in hand patterns and eventually have your goal be that you want her do you it with you but no reins or leads. You can also teach her some tricks, like I taught my horse to bow.
Grooming, walks, in-hand work, letting her follow you around when you check the field...
