I would say yes.
Other than on the infrequent race day, pacers are worked slowly and calmly in their jog carts, not even the racing bikes. During off season many go back to their farms and when being brought back after a lay off, they are often walked and jogged on farm roads around corn or what ever is grown.
I knew some people in Michigan who used to take retired STBs and get them going for pleasure driving. They initially worked them at a fairgrounds on the small dirt track there. They kept it slow and relaxed and didn't have a problem. They introduced four wheeled carts as they went.
There are few naturally gaited pacers, so many of the pacers they took, simply jogged/trotted along without having hopples on.
Good luck. I love STBs as a breed.
