'clicking' hip

I notice when I ride bare back(riding bareback lately) that Gidget's left hip ..might be her leg but when I'm on her it sounds like it's her hip.It's in that general area but anyways I hear a tiny click. I was wondering what you guys thought it could be? I will call the vet to see what they think as well.You just don't want to mess around with horses limbs.
Anyones horses have clicky hips?

Thanks :)
I read something similar on another site....maybe it's nothing but you never know. I will call the vet and ask them and if they think it's serious they will want to take a look. As long as she is healthy and happy. Oh and one more thing is it doesn't happen when she trots..haven't cantered around lately but doubt it happens then as well...seems its just at a walk..it comes and goes. She doesn't seem in pain either.
Guess the only person to know is our vet!
