Another thought, something I notice I often do if I have some bad experiences in certain areas of a field or arena... do you think maybe you tense up in that area without realizing it, and in turn she picks up on your nervousness and acts out in response to that?
It might not hurt to watch someone else ride her briefly and see what happens. I find I learn a lot about my horse and my own riding by observing sometimes. If you don't want someone else to ride her, then have someone record you riding her. It might give you another perspective on what and why this is happening.
And if that doesn't work... ride her through it. Don't focus on that area. Focus your attention on another point past the scary area, and just work on getting to that "safe" spot.
