"Polysaccharide storage myopathy is a common cause of exertional rhabdomyolysis, muscle soreness,
and weakness. The primary breeds affected are Quarter Horses, draft horses, and Warmblood
breeds. In Quarter Horses, the disease is known to have a genetic basis. Providing a diet low in
starch and high in fat and fiber in addition to gradually introducing daily exercise dramatically
improves clinical signs."
