[RC] Light Riding Question - Val Nicoson

My mare may possibly have bone spavin which hopefully
will be confirmed yes/no shortly after tax season. 
Meanwhile am told that light riding should be pursued.

Can anyone provide ideas and parameters regarding what
exactly constitutes "light" riding?  Do understand
this does not include any LD/endurance riding...but
how about conditioning...i.e. what should the mileage
limitation be for this condition?  Mostly we would do
this at a walk with a small amount of trotting.  Would
5 miles be OK?  What about 10?  
Personally am thinking 5 would be OK but perhaps 10
may be too much?
Thanks for your thoughts,
