Collateral Ligament "Pull"

So my horse "pulled" his collateral ligament(it is in the hoof an one of the main ligaments attaching to the cannon bone - thats what I gathered from the vet's desciption) in his left front leg on the inside of the leg. He has recieved extensive medical care, MRIs, high powered ultrasounds, shockwave, etc and is well on his road to recovery. The injury occured August 21, 2010 so we are well into his recovery. He is now walking 30mins and trotting 5 which is slowly and steadily increasing all depending on the weather up here in CT. I am just looking to see if anyone else on here has any personal experiences with this or know of a friend who has had this problem. Have you used any supplements during the recovery? My horse has been fitted in bar shoes and the such. He was rate a "0" in a straight line, a "0" to the left and a "1" to the right at our last check up(in January). He also hadn't trotted at all before being checked and he had to lunge on a pretty much frozen lunge ring at the vet hospital and after going around twice to the right worked into a VERY sound trot so, all is slowly progressing back to soundness. If any of you have any experiences to share I am very interested in hearing them as most of the things that can be found online are just an explanation of the injury.

I ride english and hunter/jumper. My horse is 15 year old 17.3 warmblood. I mostly do the equitation and I am a bit worried about showing him once he is "recovered" because of the rollbacks and such. Obviously there are always options in rollbacks to do a lengthier turn but, in experience whoever can do the more challenging turn successfully gets more points. I am interested in any information that any of you have, any breed or discipline. Let me know! Thanks
