I neeed help identifying my horse's symptoms!

Last Saturday my horse got back from his first equestrian team, which lasted a few days. Around Monday he started acting ill
Some of his symptoms are:
- Lethargy
- Nasal and eye Discharge ( clear)
- Shivering
He is still eating and drinking regularly, does not have a fever ( I have been taking his temperature everyday) and is not dehydrated. I think he may have Equine Influenza, but I'm not sure. Does anyone know what these symptoms could indicate or have experience with symptoms simliar?

Thank you so much!

I thought about that, but supposedly after about 4 days of being infected the horse is supposed to have swollen lymph nodes. But his are not swollen and it's been a week.

Hmmmm, is he sore anywhere?
Or could it be that he is "Tying up"?

Tying up is something that happens suddenly, not over the course of a week. I'm thinking cold of some sort, or upper respitory infection. I would call a vet and let them know his symptoms, and see what they say.

Your horse needs to see a vet.

Symptoms for a week need veterinary care. If you can afford Equestrian Team, you can afford a vet.
