It means to smack the horse with the end of your reins on alternating sides. You smack them on one side. Then bring your reins over the horse and smack on the other side. Bring the reins back over and smack the first side again. You keep doing that until they move. I don't smack them on the neck. I use long reins and do it just behind my legs. Usually I end up hitting the saddle or my legs and hardly even touch the horse. The sound and movement is usually enough to get them to move. If they don't, I reach a little more so it does hit them.
