Horse had tendinitis, jumping?

I found an amazing Appendix jumping mare, 8 years old, and I can't think of ANY cons about her except one thing. She had tendinitis as a 3 year old.. On her right hind. I realize what it is, usually caused by overload on the soft tissue, blah blah blah. But getting to the point, is there a possibility that she could still jump comfortably without an issue? I mean, the leg would most likely be more susceptible to injury and every horse is different.. She jumps 3 feet, has a great jump, I watched her being ridden and videos of her being ridden, nothing on her right hind that I can detect although I will be sending the videos to my trainer and she can probably detect any lameness there is. I will absolutely do a vet check, although I will not be able to be there as she is 7/8 hours away, so it would be over the phone. Opinions anyone?

And yes, I would be jumping her, doing trails, some dressage and such. I do not know how tall I would jump, just depends on how I progress! Thanks in advance!

I'd be more eager to hear your vets opinion than ours.

It depends is my answer. Many horses have injuries like this and recover fully, some don't. There is a higher risk of reinjury, much if you have ever sprained your ankle, it's always weaker than the ankle you never sprained.

How has she been performing between the years of 3 and 8?

Okay, vet check today! She passed with flying colors leg wise. The vet thinks it was actually just extra fluid in the leg sheath and that she is completely recovered and should be great for jumping! He also said she has a very sweet personality. He said her hoof material suggests she probably will still need shoes (at least on front hooves). The only things were she needed her hooves/teeth done, needed to loose 50-60 pounds, and her vaccinations and she is all set! Very happy :) Oh and the owners said no lameness ever other than the tendinitis/fluid thing (whatever it was). He did flexion tests on concrete, and trotted her out on big rocks and she was fine..
