Thank you for such a wonderful entry.   I was delighted to be able to judge outside as Ridgebacks show much better there, and I thought they looked splendid in the sunshine.   The breed has improved since I last judged with much better lay of shoulder but upper arm is often short or straight which spoils the dog’s reach.   I was looking for a ridgeback without exaggeration that could move with reach and drive covering the ground with ease.   Temperaments were very good. Ridges and crowns were generally correct but one ridge had a third crown which is not acceptable in the ring.   I felt the quality today lay with the bitches and in some classes regrettably there were not enough cards to go round.   Especially nice to see so many veterans reminding us of their contribution to the breed gene pool. MPD(1)   1 Torr’s Bovijo Blaze of Glory 9 mths.   Good bone.   Masculine head with good stop and correct ear placement. Clean neck into very good lay of shoulder and return of upper arm.   Deep chest and level topline. Good rear angulation.   Moved out very steadily. PD(5:1a)   Dunn’s Fadil Nallah by Luanda for Tukela Eyecatching 10mths puppy.   Pleasing head and expression with dark eye.   Clean neck into good shoulder, would like more return of upper arm.     Needs to drop in brisket but well ribbed back.   Level topline, Well angulated rear quarters.   Movement good but still a little loose at the moment.   This will tighten up with maturity BPD.   2 Worthington’s Veldtkammer Winds of Change at Tungattosh R/Wh 10mths with strong bone.   Good head with nice dark eye.   A little short in the neck but good lay of shoulder and return of upper arm, Deep chest but would prefer a little more ribbing back.   Strong rear quarters but straight in the stifle.   After settling he moved quite well.   3 Mylonas’s Rozelridge El Primo 10 mths finer in bone than 2.   Nice head and expression.   Good front and rear angulation.
