I've even seen one vet do it that is now in western Canada. I don't
think it's a regional thing but a vet thing. The ones I've seen do it
can watch two horses trot while the quickly feel the tendons.

They feel the tendons WHILE the horses's trot? They must be fast ;).

I'm not saying that they can't see a big lameness on a straight trot, THREE horses at a time, but we both know that a very slight lameness will not show up on a straight trot (even if its one horse trotting at a time).  For people who don't do their own lameness exams  (watch their horse trot in a circle) and just rely on ride vets to tell them their horse is sound, they're missing a big piece of the picture and I'm sure most ride vets would TELL them that.
