Coronet band injury

Calypso aka Lilly cut herself somehow near her coronet band the other day. It's about a two inch cut. It doesn't seem very deep. She's not limping or showing any signs of distress with it. I have treated it with an antiseptic. I haven't been doing any round pen work with her because of it, but I'm wondering if I do just the simple things; (whoa, backup, sidepass, etc.) could I continue to work her as long as she's not showing an signs of it hurting. Or should I just leave her be until it heals?

If it's just a scrap and it's not hot, swollen or she's limping I would go ahead with the simple stuff. Walking will keep the blood flow moving which will help with the healing.

Just keep it clean if your working in a dirt ring.

Poor baby.

Just keep an eye on it. My mare had a very similar injury and she had to be put on stall rest for close to a month. My vet now seems to think that it was caused by her hoof being trimmed incorrectly by the farrier. If she shows even the slightest sign of being lame I'd call the vet.
