Well, whacking her and yelling might make it stop, but it won't make the reason she does it stop. You can't punish a horse out of ill feelings.
Don't allow her to be crowded by other horses. If another horse comes close, ride away. Stick a red ribbon on her tail, too, so folks will try to stay away from her. She feels overconfined and put in a bad spot and feels she has to do what she has to do to defend herself.
