[RC] EIPH bleeder??? - Linda Winkel

I am looking for some information on EIPH. My gelding at times has a very thin spray of blood in his nostrils very a day of hard riding. We thought it was because he does like rhymic breathing when he is working hard.. likes to hear himself breath. But at the edurnance ride yesterday he had more blood than nomal in his nostrils.. not dripping or pooling but you could see he had blood in his nostrils. This was after completing a LD on a 70 degree day. The vet said I needed to get him scoped. Which I propably will. Also suggested chinese herbs.
What do other people do for this problem.. at no time was he having any problems if anything he was being held back.. he loves to go and is in condition for the sport. he turns 8 in May but has just started his endurance rides.. only 4 thus far.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
