My geldings always play fight and rip each others manes. My "superstar" gelding lost most of his mane from that. Since he's a really refined Arabian type mini I clipped his bridle path a little longer than I normally would. It still looked ok and a lot of people do clip longer bridle paths. Depending on where the hairloss is, would that be a possibility?
try a strand of electric fencing around the paddock, she deffinatly won't continue to rub! The rubbing though may be caused by itchy dry skin. bathing with a moisturizing or medicated shampoo may help to sooth the skin and prevent rubbing. My geldings rub all the time during the spring, the both have dry skin. I use a shampoo called Cowboy Magic Rosewater Shampoo and it's amazing! Leaves the skin healthy and the coat super shiny! You could also try adding flax, mineral oil or corn oil to you horse's feed. They help keep the skin healthy to prevent dry itchiness. In the meantime for a show depending on what u do, braiding or banding the mane may work
