I'm not going to say it isn't a medical or physical issue but it could be a mental one too. When a horse is nervous, anxious, or having to "think", they can get sweaty on their necks really bad. I've had horses that I've worked with that get sweaty when changing directions, backing and doing transitions a lot, or making them concentrate or "think". If I ride the same horse down the trail, they stop sweating or don't sweat as much.
It also could be that he is getting adjusted to change in humidity from where he was. There are times where I go outside just to have a smoke ( no lectures). I'll be just sitting there and sweat. If I get up and move around, I stop sweating or don't sweat as much.
You could have him checked out by a vet just to be sure. Or you can make sure he stays hydrated and watch for any other changes.
