Hi Rain,
I'm not sure exactally what kind of advice you are looking for here...
I know that horses, although it might not seem very nice to you, they really do enjoy being ridden. In fact its a great way to bond with your horses. Ive heard of horses actually becomming depressed after not being ridden anymore, when they had a rider for many years.
In your situation, I'm not sure how ridable your horses are? If the tendon injury is too hard for the horse to carry the extra weight etc., If you can get on your horses, I think they might like that, just to get the personal bond back.
They may require a refresher course of training if its been 5 years since they were last ridden.
If you cant ride them, or really dont want to, you could always just take them for a walk, like you would a dog.
They enjoy the human interaction. Maybe this is all they are lacking. Just spend lots of time with them. Think up little games you could play with them. Do they have a special treat they really like? Such as apples or something? Try putting it under a bucket or something, and see if they can figure out how to get it.
I find through my experience, that they are much like dogs in the sense that they thrive on human attention, and human bonds.
If you have trails near by or on your property, try taking them for a walk or something. Some new scenery might pull them out of this "boredom"
Hope this is helps you.
Good luck with your horses.
