How should I get my horse fit again

I'm leaving for England on July 14 and I'm staying there for about a month ( and I'll be seeing some of the Olympics ( team showjumping)) (YAY!!) my horse usually gets a bit crazy if I havn't ridden him in 5 days let alone 5 weeks!!!!! I was just wondering if I should ease him back into work (walk trot canter and jumping around 1-2 feet) or just keep going how I use to.

Please say how long I should ease him back into work before I can go back to normal work.

He should be fine. If you don't feel safe, lunge him first to get him in "working" mode and then hop on and ride with a good warm up and cool down.
