Of course you can ride with it although the air cast will make you keep your leg further away from the saddle!
I busted mine when a dog ran out from behind a hedge and the horse spooked and my leg hit a tree. I had a plaster cast and was back riding that afternoon. You do, with a plaster cast, have to put a numnah on top of the saddle to stop the cast rubbing the leather!
The next day one of the liveries did exactly the same thing and broke hers and the following day it happened to a third person though she didn't break her leg!
My answer was to stop on the way home, hobble down the track with the chain saw and remove the offending tree, which was only a small one!
The dog was new to the owners and would just pop her head out at the end of the hedge, she wasn't doing anything wrong really, just curious. The horses soon got to know her and ignore.
P.S. Keep your doctor he sounds like a sensible man! Mine gave up telling me not to ride after an injury.
