LOL...time?!? What's that???? We're two full time working parents of an active 10 year old. Somehow we belong to several dog clubs and actively do hunt, show, obedience, rally... Must be why I can't remember my 30s. Hunt test judging without horses...We have two sets that alternate braces and judge on foot. We pick them up and drop them off at the line with a golf cart so they rest up in between. So far it's worked very well.Sent from my Verizon Wireless Phone----- Reply message -----From: "Laura Wood" <firstname.lastname@example.org>To: "email@example.com" <firstname.lastname@example.org>Subject: [gsp-l] Hunt Test questionDate: Sat, Sep 17, 2011 8:21 pmSo, What if you don't have the time to do both ?

She mentioned that most Club members were "show only". IMHO there is a big part of the problem. In our breed nobody should be 'show only'. If they are, then they really don't understand or appreciate
the finer points of our conformation standard. All "show" folk should be familiar enough with the function of the GSP in the field to successfully take their exhibit/breeding stock at least through a Junior title. Until you've done that I submit you don't understand the Breed.Also, you're missing out on a boatload of fun! From the Club's standpoint, Junior entries are the gravy. You can run 4 Junior braces to 2 Senior/Master braces. The Junior braces bring the new owners out to learn about the Club & activities (and hopefully get more involved!)Char RutarAnn Harris <email@example.com> wrote:>Diane we are suffering the same in Canada. Right now our test this coming week has six master hunters eight seniors and two juniors if this holds after closing we are going to put on a field training session after the
test and invite all we can. I think it's just the year or perhaps we have too many hunt tests now. In this area we have eight Spring and fall. >Ann>>Sent from my iPad>>On 2011-09-17, at 3:48 PM, firstname.lastname@example.org wrote:>>> Hello, >> >> Sleepy Hollow had our annual hunt test today and the entries were low.
