Just to clarify, are you asking for an extended trot, which is developed from collected trot, and required in dressage tests above a certain level or a lengthened trot, which is just asking the horse for a longer step while maintaining the same tempo and rhythm and is common for hunters and English pleasure?
Because the requirements of the two are very different, and it will affect the critique. A lot of people use extended/lengthened interchangeably, which adds to the confusion. I prefer to save "extended" for the dressage meaning, to avoid confusion.
