Pilonidal Cysts and Cavalry

During World War II, more than 80,000 American soldiers developed pilonidal cysts that required a hospital stay. People thought the cysts were due to irritation from riding in bumpy Jeeps. For a while, the condition was actually called "Jeep disease." I was wondering if these cysts would be a problem with cavalrymen during our era ("trauma" to the region, bad hygiene, etc.). Anyone have any info on this?
