Create a conditioning program for your horse to gradually move them up to higher intensity work.

Quick and sudden increase in intensity and amount of work is often a trigger for rhabdomyolysis.  Make sure to properly condition your horse to the level of work expected of them, feed accordingly and make sure to always properly warm up and cool down your horse. For example you would not expect a horse that has been sitting for two months to properly complete a jumping course without proper conditioning, this would out them at risk of rhabdomyolysis as well as muscle strains, stain to respiratory and cardiovascular system.
