Abstract

Application: The equine muscle disorder exertional rhabdomyolysis (ER) is an animal welfare concern that has substantial financial implications for equine industries. Breeders may inadvertently be selecting for the disease (Isgren et al., 2010), and identifying genetic markers could inform future breeding programmes. Recognition of specific clinical presentations across different breeds might reveal separate causes enabling more refined treatments and prophylaxis.
