Help! building a horse up after the healing of leg injurie

Hi I have a mare who stained micro tears to her leg 2 year ago it is full healed, but I want to bring her back into medium work very slowly......
So what would be some good light unstraining exercises that might help
Or even some products that might help keep that leg safer from injuries
Any help or ideas would be great thanks.

If you have access to a horse you can use, and someone who can teach you how, I'd suggest ponying her. It's a great way to bring a horse back into work, and is much easier on the legs than longing
