I stick to the rule that any exercise regime starts with walk walk walk walk walk. Then walking up hills. Then, only after you are resigned to walking forever, do you introduce trot.
How long the walk part lasts depends on the injury, and the previous fitness level of the horse. 6 weeks walk maybe for e tendon recovery, 4 weeks maybe for a horse that has been off for 6 months but was fit before.
Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
