I know very little about horses, but most of the horses I've met (admittedly all boarded at a riding school where good manners are taught to every hores) love being scratched on their forehead. While helping a friend groom her horse, the lady in the box opposite was doing hers, and her horse doesn't like the body brush around his face. So she scratches with her knuckles and then goes over the same place with the brush to associate yay-scratching-and-love with the grooming.
