Long term effects of ligament surgery

My RMH is sold :( but I have an opportunity to exercise a TWH for the winter and I have a few questions about her. A few years ago she had surgery on her right front tendon, I'm not sure of all the details, but the result she is a little lame. Sometimes its really obvious and other times its hard to see. She likes to walk fast and pace, but when she paces its more pronounced. I was told that the surgery lengthened her tendon or ligament on that side. Could she be compensating with the other leg? I'll try and get some video the next time I ride. Could this surgery have a long term effect of her just limping? Is she is pain if she wants to go faster all the time?

I know its a lot of questions, but I want to be sure that easy walking and riding will be good for her and not do her harm. She really wants to move fast but I don't want to let her if its going to hurt her in the long run.

Best to ask the vet. Preferably the one that did the surgery and knows the details of the case.

For all your farrier needs, GET BNT!

We did ask a vet, but she didn't really have an answer other than to clear her for light riding (not the vet that did the surgery). But the horse really wants to Move, so I wonder if she is just stubborn or if it doesn't hurt her. Just wondering if someone else has had the same problem or experience.
