I personally think it is a wonderful idea. It would be a great way to get amateurs like myself and many others competing more frequently on a higher level. My side is that it sounds like a way of getting the higher levels of the sport more widespread through hunt test handlers.Not productive because I disagree and asked you to explain your point? That's why it's a discussion. I explained my side how about yours?
Now that would be a hoot!..... a owner handler master test......
If you go practice with NBA players, would you feel intimidated by their level of skill and knowledge?Interesting point. I personally don't have a problem testing against a standard at any test with "pro's" testing too. I've found them all to be very receptive and helpful to answering any questions that I may have and they've made great suggestions which I appreciate.
Again, HT are vs a standard so what difference does it make who's there testing?
