Among other things I would check her hoof balance. Also check farther up, shoulder, withers for soreness.
Unfortunately this horse was probably sold due to this issue. You may have to haul her to the vet 120 miles away in order to get a diagnosis. I wouldn't shut her up in a stall tho, that rarely helps imo.. In a stall you have the problem of constant turning, this could be pretty stressful to a damaged joint.
