Partitial dislocation

Patient : Hi, I partially dislocated my kneecap, it's happened multiple times and there was no extra damage. I was on crutches with a brace for a week but can now walk/limp with the brace. I have been off crutches for 5 days, would it be ok for me to go horse riding? I'm asking as I've seen online that it seems to take most people much longer to recover but I've always been able to get over it much quicker. Thanks a lot if you can help.
Symptoms:  Knee feels weak/unstable, some pain still.
