Exclamation pawing the ground

My haffie mare is 27 yrs old and there is nothing wrong with her but for some reason she always paws the ground (when she's in the cross ties, when im mounted and doing a halt) I am worried this is putting stress on her legs. The big problem is when ii clean her hoofs she trys to paw and gets her hoof out of my hands and it rly hurts but what im most worried about is that a 4 yrold and a 7yrold like to groom and ride her and they may get hurt

It's a bad habit that has probably been going on for a long time. It usually starts from them being anxious or nervous or bored. When grooming, try putting a hay bag in front of her so she has something to do. Might help and might not. Either way, ignore her the best you can. She will keep doing it if it gets her to get attention.
