First panic attack, started on my horse before a race

I have trained race horses my whole life, however I had taken a couple years off. This weekend I was back at my first race and I had been nervous all day long. I ran my horse and he didn't do very good, but after that I was no longer nervous to run him again. I was so mad at him for doing what he had done in the race I could not wait to run him again. It was about 20 minutes before the race, and i was on my horse. I was completely fine when I noticed that I zoned out and felt like I almost passed out. There was no pain what so ever. I was on my horse and made him walk off thinking that I just zoned out and needed to wake up and walk around a bit. It was moments later when again I zoned out and felt like I had blacked out for a split second. I knew something was wrong with me at that point and got off my horse. I kept almost falling over but never did. I had no idea what was wrong with me but I knew it was something. I got very very pale and was starting to panic bad about the fact that I was not going to be able to run in the race. I was panicking about everything actually. I thought I was going to die and I was telling my friends but I was freaking out inside that they were not taking me serious. come to find out they knew I was having a panic attack. it lasted about 1 hour and it was miserable.
