Correction. Immediate and to the point. If you need to, use a crop or whip. I prefer a dressage whip, as it has a longer reach.
A sharp, 'NO!' along with the physical correction should take care of it. You may have to do it more than once, depending on her temperament.
Your body language will also play a big part, as that's how horses primarily communicate. You have to be bold, confident, and make sure your voice is loud and commanding. A meek little, 'Now stop that! Noooo!' will do nothing.
She also needs the companionship of other horses because she apparently didn't have the proper socialization, moreso if she was taken from her mother too soon.
How 'hurt' did she get when you put her in with the other two? Bleeding, torn skin, etc.? Or was it just bite and kick marks? If it was the latter, then she'll live and needs to be put back out with them. Horses, especially youngsters, play rough. A few hairless places and bite marks aren't going to kill her.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
