Bringing a horse back into work after an injury?

Indie's leg is doing much better, so at this rate, it's likely that she'll be put back into work at my Tuesday lesson.. although my instructor said we'll just stick to simple walk work and it probably won't be the full hour.

I'm just wondering how slowly I should take it with her, as I don't want to work her too hard before her leg is ready. It's a bit of a bummer that I'll have to work her back up to what we were doing before, but I have all the time I need.

Let the horse tell you how much and how fast.

If you ride at a walk for 30 minutes and the next day the horse is sore, it was too much too soon. If there is no change do that for a week, then increase the time but not the stress (go to 45 minutes at the walk). See how it goes.

The horse will tell you.
