For some reason, when I draw a sketch now, the default hor and vert constraints are not being applied to my sketch. Where are the settings for this?

With the sketch panel active (sketch in process) hit the dropdown arrow on the "constrain" section and make sure "constraint inference" and "constraint persistance" are checked/highlighted.

It could be that you have your defaults set to 'Parallel and Perpendicular' rather than 'Horizontal and Vertical'.
