Absolutely.  What I meant (and maybe it wasn't clear) was that you have to 
work harder to develop the one that does not come naturally, and that you can 
utilize anything that a horse does well naturally, even if it is not what 
"everyone" says you should be doing.  IOW, if a horse is a natural canterer, 
by all means develop the trot and use it too, but don't feel ashamed to take 
advantage of his natural ability to canter well, even if everyone nags you 
that you "should" be trotting.
