Right before Ash was taken by Team Rocket, the two spent a day together teaching Ash the sport. During that same day, Serena realized that she actually had a connection with Rhyhorn, and began to understand why her mother loved it so much.
Not only does she train them, and well, but she also grooms them frequently in preparation for their performances, and dresses them up in the best clothes. Because of this pampering, her bond with Pancham, Fennekin, and Sylveon is incredibly strong!
