No its not cruel its just a way to teach him not to be scared.
^^^Actually that is cruel, because its a horses natural instinct when he/she is frightened. So next time you are terrified tell somebody to "pop" you :) ^^^

We have a horse that was doing that and we did not "just pop him" we got the vet out to check him and it turned out that he has a cyst in his right eye. So I would suggest getting him checked.

Yeah please don't discipline the horse for being scared. Work on getting him (her?) to relax and get used to all sorts of things via desensitizing or even clicker training.
