I'll be looking through the forum too for past threads, but I needed any other info that could be found too. I am doing an article on Hunt Tests in the US for one of the British Lab Clubs as they don't have anything comparable over there. I'd like any info on why tests were started years ago. I remember we discussed this earlier this year or last and will look for the thread.
Were field trials not easily accessible? Time limits for training for people? Availability of grounds? Has this been a positive thing for the sport?
I will be going through some old AKC stuff too, but know there are some here that have been competing in tests since the start.
Thanks for any help!
