I agree that it might be a sign of an underlying issue that should be addressed, easiest being getting a chiropracter out first, and see if she's just out of alignment, or it could just be the horse. My dad's horse, a Morgan, or Morgan cross, always tweaked his tail to the side when doing anything other than standing, and my Thoroughbred mare held her tail high like an Arabian, and out to the left, when turned out, and when really excited, she would curl it around so much that the tip of the tail bone touched her back. I always thought it was kind of weird for a Thoroughbred with a tail thick enough to rival a draft horse, to curl her tail like that, but she would.
