Excessive Rubbing

This morning I noticed a strange sticky spot on my horse's neck. I had my dad look at it and he said it was a bald spot from her rubbing too much.

I was talking to someone and they suggested mites. Could it possibly be mites? The spot is on the bottom part of her neck near her chest.

Any suggestions of what it might be? And solutions if it happens to be what you suggested?

It could be bug bites that she's just trying to itch, my gelding rubs his chest sometimes.

It could be a rub spot, it could be a bite of some sort. Pictures would help.
