Harry and Snowman

D: Ron Davis | USA | 84 min | Arkansas Premiere

The remarkable life story of international show jumping legend Harry deLeyer, a Dutch immigrant whose career was launched by his famous show jumping horse Snowman. Snowman was an old Amish plow horse that Harry rescued off a truck that was bound for the meat and glue factory for only $80. Less than two years after he rescued Snowman, they rose to become the national show jumping champions and were the Cinderella story and media darlings of late 1950's and 1960's. The true heart of the film is not the remarkable rags-to-riches story of both Harry & Snowman, but the lasting and impactful relationship that is built between Harry, Snowman and the entire deLeyer family. Very few horse stories have been able to truly touch the hearts of a nation. Red Pollard & Seabiscuit did in the 1930's, Harry DeLeyer & Snowman did it in the 1950's and then Ron Turcotte & Secretariat were the last to do it in the 1970's. Harry and Snowman allows 85 year old Harry to to tell his remarkable story in his own words.
