Putting the weight back on is usually the easier part, that's mainly just good nutrition. The part that seems to take forever, and which dictates how soon you can start riding, is muscle and conditioning.
And as usual, when it comes to horses, the trademarked short answer is "It Depends". It will all depend on the individual horse, how bad he is, how committed you are to getting him the feed and exercise he needs...to many variables to give an accurate time frame.
Live well, laugh often, love deeply...An' it harm none.
