    I think they are talking about the test for judging a hunt test that you have to take ever 4 years. I've taken them both. The FT test is pretty easy compared to the HT test.

    With the addition of reserved worker slots, That is the system used by agility. I'm surprised also! IMO that is the best solution.

    The pain is going to get a lot worse before it gets better!

    This is a joke!!!! It isn't possible to run 75 dogs on 2 meaningful master tests in 1 day! Especially if one is on water test.

    I would say it depends a lot on your experience level as a handler and your standards in training. There is a pretty big jump from Senior to Master.
