Section A with Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome... Anyone else have a pony with this?

I have 2 year old registered Section A who has a very dished little head. When I bought him I was told he had a respiratory issue but vet said his lungs and heart were in perfect condition. It's the same condition small dogs like Chihuahuas and Pugs get because of their small squished heads. I was just wondering if anyone else has a pony with this who can give me some information on it? Thanks.

I knew of a pony with a narrowed windpipe.

Lungs and heart are not the problem. It's the nostrils that need to flare to get air to the lungs.
