since you are limited to an indoor, I would recommend doing trot sets to start. Bump it up five minutes every week. This will help your balance and strength in two point as well as give your horse a chance to regain his muscles. I'm a Novice/Training rider and my horse is up to 35 minutes. I would recommend that for your horse as well
Poles poles poles! Cavaletti is a great tool in building up hind end strength.
When you get a chance to go outside, Hillwork is important too. Basically the same as the trot sets indoors but on hills. It will build up more muscles that the flat indoor won't do.
Good luck and let us know how he does!!
