I have nothing against smacking a horse to correct bad behavior, but this sounds like an impatient horse, and I've never seen smacking fix that. For an impatient horse, I leave the horse tied and go do some other chores for 10-15 minutes, ignoring the behavior, and repeat until the horse will stand calmly. Sounds corny, but it takes patience to teach a horse patience.
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
