LACERATION Question

A week ago I brought my ottb mare in from the pasture due to a laceration on her pastern (right inner side) she didn't hit any tendons but she did slightly go into the digital cushion. All in all for a pastern injury it is quite minor. I have put wonder dust on it and wrapped well to act as a cast to prevent movement. I redo this every other day and yesterday I let it air dry for the day in a clean environment. Overall the wound is looking clean and healing (however slow). I have been hand walking her and she isn't off in the slightest but due to the muddy weather we have there is no where I can turn her out for 30min to hour. In just your opinion or from your personal experience would it be ok to ride her lightly so that she can get more time out to stretch her legs. Of course it would be only walking and we would have have to stick to the back roads.

If she's sound and if the wound is well on the path to recovery, I don't think that light walking on good ground would hurt a thing.
