My current mare is highly distractible, sensitive around the flank area and a bit 'grumpy' in general for a few days, but I have never noticed her become itchy. I am however relatively lucky, Storm is fairly discrete, only really shows she is in season if a cute rig or stallion (or eager gelding) is in the area
Is she only itchy when in season or a lot of the time? Is she scratching her self or 'presenting' herself to everything, a friends mare will present to anything and everything (trees, fences, people etc)
Dose she pee on her tail and legs a lot? Could it be bugs biting/driving her nuts, attracted by the urine?
My other thought is dirty bits, check her udder and under her tail for and build up of muck, my mare regularly get a build up between the two teats.
If she is always itching I would be checking for worms, mites and skin issues
