Why does my horse stomp her back foot whenever she swishes her tail?

She used to do this a lot, now I don't see it so much since it started to snow. She did it in the fall, even when there was no flies around. She would always stomp her back foot whenever she would swish her tail. Why would she do this...?

Sounds to me like there was a bug of some kind irritating her even if you couldn't see it. My horses all notice a bug before I do haha

My daughter's lesson horse does this too. They thought he needed his sheathe cleaned, called the vet out to do that and look for anything else, and he found nothing. We discovered this fall that he had an itch on his belly and now when he starts doing that a lot, someone takes a curry to his belly and he stops. He's so funny, he'll actually lift his leg so you can rub it better.

The bugs could have been up between her legs. Also pain could cause them to do that.
