no harm in ruling out ulcers, but my bet is that she is testing you
You say she started this behavior just a day or two after you got her.
Kinda warning light for me, that the old owner always had to ride her with a crop and martingale
When you test rode her, was she saddled up fresh, gotten out of the pasture, stall, or whatever, or had that old owner 'ridden her down' ?
When buying a horse, it is a good policy to try that horse out at least 3 times, making sure that she was NOT Ridden before you rode her
Could be possible that she still has some sand in her gut, as just giving her banamine and being tubed with mineral oil, won't remove all the sand.
