Does your mare have shoes on? If so did she have it removed to be able to bandage the hoof? If so get the farrier back out to reshoe her then you can start working her again. Try and keep the hole as clean as you can to stop it getting infected again.

I have recently had 2 of mine with hoof abcess's. One is now back in work and the other is retired.  Mine are barefoot so i don't have to worry about getting thw farrier back out to reshoe so i can just start working them again once they are clear and sound.

Don't rush ask advice from vet or farrier, as we all know things have a nasty habit of biting you on the backside especially with horses.

 Once she is trotting up sound you should be good to go. Hoof abscesses are not that big a problem.
