Cherry Hill Receives Top Hand Award
For Release 5:29 PM MDT, May 23, 1996
Cherry Hill is the recipient of the Top Hand Award for Specialty Writing for her 1996 book, 101 Arena Exercises, A Ringside Guide for Horse and Rider, published by Storey Publishing. The blue-ribbon panel of judges commented that the book was "a very clearly written workbook that showed the author's passion for her subject."
101 Arena Exercises is an 8 1/2 x 11 specially-bound book that is designed to hang at ringside. Each exercise is clearly illustrated with a drawing, an arena map, step-by-step instructions, benefits, cautions, variations, and special notes. It's "read and ride" format has proven useful to riders and instructors at every level in both English and Western riding.
The Colorado Authors' League was established in 1931 and has presented Top Hand Awards to the best published fiction and non-fiction books and articles of the year covering any subject. Originally the awards were a carved figure of a cowboy standing on a book, then hand-carved wooden horses. Although today's Top Hand Awards no longer depict a Cowboy theme, the title of Top Hand is especially appropriate for Cherry Hill, author of 10 books and over 700 articles on the care and training of horses.
