We’re delighted to announce that the Kennel Club has granted Midlands & Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Club permission to not only hold a second Championship Show in 2021, but also to move the date and location of the 2021 April Open Show so that both are held on the same day. The date is 3rd April 2021 and the venue will be the Kennel Club Building at Stoneleigh. Breed specialist Janice Bennie (Nehando) will judge the open show, with all-rounder Graham Hill taking charge of the champ show entry.  As the date falls on Easter weekend, there will be some special touches laid on to welcome you all back!

Watch this space for further information. We look forward to seeing lots of you and your beautiful hounds on the day!

CLUB OPEN SHOW 28TH NOVEMBER 2020 in aid of Rescue


With regret, the committee of Midlands & Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Club has taken the difficult decision to cancel its open show, due to have been held on 28th November 2020. This is due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding social distancing requirements and government restrictions on indoor gatherings. However, please stay tuned for some extremely exciting show news, which we hope to be able to bring you very soon!  


As many will know, the November show was to have been in aid of the Rhodesian Ridgeback Welfare Trust, with 100% of the profits going to this very worthy charity.  If anyone is able, we know the RRWT would be immensely grateful for any donations, in lieu of entry fees or otherwise, to enable the organisation to continue with its vital work supporting Ridgebacks less fortunate than our own.  https://www.rrwt.org/donations2.php

Club Championship Show 15th August 2020


In light of the current government guidelines and recommendations from the Kennel Club, the officers and committee of Midlands & Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Club have, with regret, made the decision to cancel our forthcoming Championship Show. Our judge has been informed.

On behalf of the committee, I’d like to extend our thanks to exhibitors for your support of the show. We appreciate your entries.

At the current time there is no change anticipated to  November charity show, we hope that will go ahead as planned, but of course we will keep you all informed of the situation as we progress.

Stay safe, everyone, and we look forward to seeing you all maybe later in the year!

Lynsey Forrester – Secretary

The committee and members of the Midlands and Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Club welcome you to our web site. Hopefully you will find the information that you seek and at the same time enjoy the experience.

At all times our main concern is for Rhodesian Ridgebacks and for those that have an interest in them. To this end the club organizes various events throughout the calendar year which hopefully prove to be both informative and entertaining.

Sadly, despite the best efforts of all Ridgeback Clubs, the number of Ridgebacks that are in need of re-homing continues to grow. Please contact any of the breed clubs for more information.

We hope you enjoy browsing our web site and that it proves useful.
