Can anything make adhesions form faster?

I have had 3 surgeries in the past 3 1/2 years. The first was a colectomy which was followed 2 1/2 years later by my first bowel obstruction (from adhesions) surgery and am now recovering from my second obstruction surgery. My surgeon both times has said that I had extensive adhesion formation. My question is this, are there any physical activities that my speed up the formation of adhesions? I ride a horse on a routine basis that is comparable to riding a jack hammer. He has very big rough gaits and it is a tough torso workout to ride him. I frequently have abdominal pain after riding. Am I making things worse faster?
