Amba made her first appearence in the big show ring at the Southern Counties Bearded Collie Club Championship Show on 6th February 2010, where she was placed second in minor puppy bitch under judge Paula Brooks. This qualified her for Crufts 2011.
Paula Brooks stated - "Bowden's Subessen Bit of a Cheek - Slate, 6 months and very much a baby. A nice puppy that covered the ground well when settled. Pleasing expression with typical head proportions and dark eyes. Good shoulder placement and correct rib. Good rear angles and neat hocks."
