Jabulani's Newest Family
to the Internet Home of Jabulani® Rhodesian Ridgebacks!
Kate Borst and Jabulani to you. Jabulani means "be happy" in the
African language of Ndebele. This is what our kennel is about. We
are a small, private hobby kennel and have been in existence since 1987.
Today, Jabulani Rhodesian Ridgebacks® are seen competing in many areas.
The Jabulani line evolved out of Freland Rhodesian Ridgebacks during
the mid-80's. Over the
years, I have chosen to outcross my kennel to other Rhodesian Ridgeback lines
when I have desired to define or refine my kennel line in a certain way.
You will see these outcrosses on my "Reference Sires" page under "Our
As a hobby kennel, Jabulani Rhodesian Ridgebacks® has received numerous awards
and recognition from the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of America (RRCUS). Over the years,
these awards have included: multiple Top Breeder awards, Top Stud Dog awards,
Top Brood Bitch awards, Register Of Merit awards, and awards in the Triathlon at
the Rhodesian Ridgeback Nationals -- to name a few.
Jabulani has championed more than 40 dogs in AKC conformation and has had
multiple lure coursing Field Champion titles -- including multiple Best in Field
honors. Today, Jabulani dogs are also competing for
titles in agility, obedience, canine good citizen, therapy dog, and tracking. As
a small kennel, I am very proud of our record.
I hope you will come and visit us for an afternoon of educational Rhodesian
Ridgeback videos and conversation. Seeing Rhodesian Ridgebacks in their
environment and meeting their breeders will help you to make a sound choice for
your future companion. But don't take my word for it; I encourage you to speak
with many breeders so you feel comfortable with your decision.
