I've only seen excessive drooling for 3 reasons (just in my experience, I'm sure there are lots of others:))
1. Ulcer/sore in the mouth, or possibly a bad tooth. Seen this several times.
2. Choke. But you said you don't think it's that.
3. An allergy. We had a mare that did this. She drooled BUCKETS. Turns out she had an allergy to the type of meds she had been given.
Again, I'm sure there are lots of other reasons, but these are the situations I've been in. Call a vet to look in her mouth - try to get one that had a speculum to hold the mouth open to have a GOOD look in there. Maybe consider having the horse scoped if nothing is found in the mouth.
