You know, horses wouldn't stand quietly and let you 'flog' them. Out of the fight or flight reaction, flight is the most likely. If a newbie owner held a horse then hit it hard they'd get a bit of a shock. If they weren't holding it and hit it they could very well have it spin and lash out as it took off. If they succeeded either way, as Longblades said, they'll have trouble getting near enough to catch it next time, let alone hit it. Pity the OP didn't actually see what happened.
