The vets are looking for lamness and fatigue ,not to see if you horse has an ablility to trot. There are often a variety of gaited horses at rides and they don't all trot.I'm sure you won't have a problem, and a much easier ride:}

Subject: [RC] Pacing at Vetting alowed?
I know that you have to do a trot out at the vetting. But.. the thing is..
im going to be using a standardbred mare that DOES NOT trot. She only
paces. Is that going to be an issue for my vetting? Or is pacing ok? I
dont want to find out that its going to be an issue.. thats why i ask this
now before i put the miles into her. Thanks so much:)
