bringing a horse back into work

Hi! I've just started leasing a clydie x, he is 16 and 15.2 and has had a pretty easy life to date. He has been out of work for about a month and before that I am unaware of how much riding (workout riding I mean) but I do know the previous rider is into farm hacking with him. It's my job to bring him back into work during the winter ready for the next pony club season, I know you should do this lightly, like you would when training for a marathon but how lightly do you reckon? I was working on canter transitions today for about 20 minutes and took him for a hack over the farm, I will be riding almost every day and was just wondering what your guys ideas are when bringing a horse into work? I have aaaaaaa looootttt of time to spend with this guy so slow and steady isn't a problem.

What exercises would you do? Suggestions for things I can do with this fella would be greatly appreciated! (I just would like a more solid idea of what I should do each day!) Thanks heaps!

I recommend using basic patterns to start, serpentines, 20 meter and 10 meter circles, figure eights. If you want to do English he has to be supple and on the bit. He needs to be able to bend and move. Start with that.
