Dislocating knee..

A few months ago I was riding one of my horses, Wildfire, and out of the blue he went completely lame. He wouldn't/couldn't put any weight on his back left leg and I had to trailer him back to the property because he wouldn't have been able to walk the short distance back. Shortly after getting him back he was fine. This happened several times. Sometimes when lunging, sometimes when riding, when standing for the farrier, and sometimes just completely at random. I had the vet look at him and he said it is his knee that keeps dislocating but he is fine, I just have to pop it back into place when it does happen. He also said that building up his muscle will help prevent it from popping out as often. I
I would like to get an exercise routine started but I don't know what exercises I should do. Opinions??
