my endurance mare tore her suspensory ligament, we opted for the stem cell surgery, vet said it would help heal it quicker and with more flexability than if just left to heal on its own.

3mths box rest, then light exercise, starting with walking on hard ground for 10-20mins and building up from there.

18mths after the injury we completed our first 85km ride, no problems since so yes they can come back imo, but again i guess it depends on the severity of the injury and how its handled, the vet said it was important to treat it within a week of the initial injury for best results, which we did.
