CH IMBALI KIPENZI JW WINS HOUND GROUP AT DRIFFIELD AND MAKES BREED HISTORY
At Driffield Championship Show (12 October 2002) Kip went BOB (without CCs) under breed specialist Kelvin
Barnes and then stole the show by winning the Hound Group under Dr. Arthur Sneedon. This is the only time
that a Ridgeback has ever won the Hound Group twice at a UK General Championship Show. Dr. Sneeden's
critique reads First was the Ridgeback, CH Imbali Kipenzi JW, outstanding representative of the breed,
full of quality, sound & well balanced, moving effortlessly with great drive.
The first time Kip made breed history was when he won the Junior Warrant Finals last year. Another first
for the breed is the Pedigree Calendar for 2003 where May shows Kip and litter sister Zena , this is the
first time Ridgebacks have featured in the famous Pedigree Calendar.
KIP AND ZENA FEATURE IN PEDIGREE’S 2003 CALENDAR
Early this year we were asked if we would like Kip and Zena to be photographed for the 2003 Pedigree Calendar
which is sold worldwide in 37 countries. We were under strict instructions not to mention this to anyone
until the calendar was produced. The photographs were taken on the River Severn Estuary amongst the reed
beds. They have come out superbly and we are delighted with the results. We hope you enjoy the photographs
as well, Kip and Zena feature on the May page.
