I appreciate the candor, but this RARELY works. 99.9999999999999% of the time, the horse thinks it's a game. I promise you didn't hurt that horse at all, and probably just bruised your knuckles. NEVER hit a horse in the head! It makes them head shy. Do not take this advice at all. All you need to do when a horse bites is bump (not kick, bump) it's shin or coronet band with your toe or heel as it nips/bites. It makes the horse look down when it thinks of getting nippy. You'll have most horses nip free inside a day. Mine quit within an hour.
