Duplicate question, same answer. Riding probably is OK, but you should check with the doctor who did the arthroscopy and follow his or her advice.

Yes. This is likely ok as long as there was no meniscus repair. If a partial menisectomy/trimming was done, you should be fine to ride a horse. Check with your doctor to be sure.
