Heavy breathing

A friend of mine has a problem with her horses breathing andvasked me to post it here since she doesn't speak English.
She has an 8 years old gelding who has been ok in trainings but laetly starts breathing heavy even with minor work. For example 2 min light trotting. And his recovery time after finishing is far too long. No coughing.
We contacted tge vet who thought it might be an allergic reaction but would really like some oppinions if anyonevhas hadva similar problem.
There will also be another vet coming to look ar it in avfew days tima.

Is he sweating? if hes not i would bring that up with a vet. My BO has a gelding who stopped sweating and if he trots once around the small arena he is panting (or in his stall in the summer)
