Harry and Snowman
Directed by Ron Davis
1 hr 24 mins, NR

HARRY & SNOWMAN is a feature length documentary that tells 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 1950s and 1960s.

The true heart of the film is not the remarkable rags-to-riches story of both Harry and 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 and Seabiscuit did in the 1930s, Harry deLeyer and Snowman did it in the 1950s and then Ron Turcotte and Secretariat were the last to do it in the 1970s.

HARRY & SNOWMAN is the first time that Harry’s remarkable and heartfelt life story will be told by 86-year-old Harry himself.
