We are Edith and Henk Salm and we live in the small town of Esbeek, in the south of the Netherlands, near Tilburg.
When we came to live in Esbeek in 1993, our dream was complete to have horse stables, riding facilities and grass-land at home and we also have a chance to breed and raise some foals. Since childhood we like to ride horses and until some years ago we took part in a lot of dressage competitions. Nowadays we only ride for fun.
Before 2003, when our first Rhodesian Ridgeback Mexx came into our family as a puppy, we always have had several older ‘’second hand’’ dogs, which were looking for a new home. We had noticed the Rhodesian Ridgeback for a much longer time but we were not familiar enough with this breed to dare to take the risk to go for a ‘’replacement’’.
The Ridgeback is a marvellous dog, which we should have noticed much earlier. Our dog family consists at the moment out of 10 beautiful and lovely Rhodesian Ridgebacks.
