Open Show 18th of October 2014

About our judge Mr Clive Brownlee (Jambaro):
"I am delighted and honoured to be invited along to judge the SRRA Open Show
My love for the breed extends back to when I was a small boy hearing the fantastic stories of Rhodesian Ridgebacks from my uncle who had many ridgebacks whilst living and working in Rhodesia and Kenya in the 1950's.
We got our first Rhodesian Ridgeack nearly 17 years ago and since then have owned a further three. we have shown our dogs for many years and have gained a Championship title with our first boy. I have also been involved heavily behind the scenes within the breed club as well as the Stratford upon Avong Dog Society.
I have been judging for clese to 15 hears and I am very much looking forward to judging at your club Open Show."
 
Show Report – Clive Brownlee

Firstly many thanks to the SRRA committee for my invitation to judge their open show. Also to all the exhibitors for their entry. The number was amazing and one of the largest entries for the club open show for many years.

It was very disappointing that we were unable to show outside due to the wet ground. I am sure that the hounds would not have minded! The floor in the hall proved to be unsettling for a number of the dogs and an outside ring would have been preferred to assess movement.

All temperaments were good, most ridges correct a few slightly offset. General weight very good. Only one thing that was disappointing was the amount of dogs and bitches with poor tooth hygiene young and old.
