I own a Rocky Mountain x Arabian Gelding who is 14 years old. His name is Toofine and we have competed in everything. This past summer I was at an Arabian Show, doing huntseat classes. My friend was also competing him. It was around 90 degrees F that day and HOT. After about 4 or 5 classes back to back I rode out of the ring and my friend seen blood running out of his nose. Never seeing this before, I ran back to the trailer, threw his saddle on the ground and put a halter on him and ran to the water spigot. I washed him to cool him down, and an experienced horse woman came and wrapped a wet towel around his throat to further the cooling. I am thinking he is a bleeder.
We are training in eventing, and in eventing, the xc courses are long, and I am doubting his capability of doing these. HELP
