Read that wrong.
Its stronger because of the way it heals after been fired. Also the reason they fire them is so they'll race again so it must be ok if there still being raced and passing the trot up:P

Well, if he is hitting them at 50 cm then keep working at that height until he doesn't. There's no use pushing him up to another level when he can't jump a 50 cm grid cleanly.

He's a cute horse. I would just hate to see him scared off or something because he's being pushed to do higher jumps than he is really prepared to do.

I see were your coming from but he clears 80cm and 90cm with scope. Should I still just keep at 50cm anyway?

He proved to me on Wednesday he's not afraid of jumping when he decided to jump 1m double taking it on purely by himself and working himself to get strides right(:

^ If he is knocking rails on a bounce stride at small heights, then he isn't using his body correctly, or the bounce distances are off. I would suggest working on adjusting his stride - Until you can get a super slow, super BOUNCY, together canter. Then take him through the bounce grid again from this canter - He should bounce better as he is already set up through his body.

Simple, make sure your centered over the saddle. There's a good chance you put more weight into your left stirrup than your right (many people do shift there weight to the inside). Work on the flat by really consciously making sure your weight is evenly distributed but standing in your stirrups for a few strides then slowly sitting down. Do this around turns as well, that is where it will really show you if you're balanced or not.
Also, make sure you're not ducking slightly over the fences to one side...

About the critique comment, I understand what you're saying; but still. Someone might see something that you missed and would make you and your horse a better rider. If you just get told the same thing, who cares? But what if that critique helped you? Why pass free education up?

It heals the injury, but it doesn't make it stronger. If anything, it the leg is weaker than before the injury, plus there is less 'stretch' to the tendon
