Basically, the judges include the elements of a SH test but they may vary how the elements are presented depending on the resources available to them.

I've used double blinds in Senior for instance. Neither the land nor water resource available for the marks supported a blind. So, we used another part of the pond and a field next to it for the double blind and then walk 25 yards to the IP for the water marks.

I've seen many dogs that are so used to 2 marks and a blind in training that they mentally screw up when presented with anything else. So, the short answer is to train your dog for the elements of Senior and let the judges decide how they'll be mixed and matched.
