There were six vets watching your trot-out. The other folks were vet
The plan was to have three vets evaluating the trot-out and three vets
observing, and (theoretically, at least) those observing were not supposed
to make any comments or participate in any discussion about the horse.
After a while, those doing the evaluation cycled over to doing hands-on, the
trot observers became the trot evaluators, and three more vets who'd been
doing hands-on went over to be the trot-out observers. Eventually, all the
vets cycled through all three procedures.
The purpose of this maneuver was to try to get the vets to be consistent in
their lameness evaluations throughout the 100-, 50- and 25-mile rides.
