Where I'm at, lots of people trot the patterns. If possible, maybe you could do just training runs, if they're available at your venue, they'd be cheaper, and (at least in our organization) your name isn't announced, so its a good way to dip your toes in. I have social anxiety too, and didn't ride in our game shows for FIVE freaking years because of it. I had to be at every show for my kids, but it took me that long to get comfortable.
