"Road trot" in Road Hack classes?

I have my first show in about a month, and I plan on entering road hack classes in addition to hunter pleasure and show hack classes. In road hack classes, a "road trot" is called for. What exactly is it? Is it the same as an extended trot, or something completely different? My horse has experience in road hack so teaching her to road trot is no problem. Thanks :)

A road trot or a strong trot as we call it here, is not a true extended trot with "air time" and more collection, it is a ground covering, forward bold type trot with the horse more stretched out.

Ok, I'll make sure I work on that during schooling. Thank you!
