I have seen several vets new to endurance put the comment "gaited" on a
horses vet card, and not even watch him travel. When I questioned one vet
about this, he told me, honestly, that he couldn't tell if a gaited horse
was lame or not. A good friend of mine rides a gaited arab/saddlebred,
and vets always look at him funny until she tells them he is gaited.
Then they always say "ohhhh". But yes, I think that many vets just do not
see enough gaited horses to know what they are seeing.
