Dutch immigrant, Harry deLeyer, journeyed to the United States after World War II and developed a transformative relationship with a broken down Amish plow horse he rescued off a slaughter truck bound for the glue factory. Harry paid eighty dollars for the horse and named him Snowman. In less than two years, Harry & Snowman went on to win the triple crown of show jumping, beating the nations blue bloods. They were famous for their day and traveled around the world together. Their chance meeting at a Pennsylvania horse auction saved them both and crafted a friendship that lasted a lifetime. Eighty-six year old Harry tells their Cinderella love story firsthand, as he continues to train on today’s show jumping circuit.
“In the film, a student of Mr. deLeyer’s recalls some of his advice: ‘Throw your heart over the top, and your horse will follow.’ HARRY & SNOWMAN makes you want to do the same.” -Helen T. Verongos, New York Times
“Laced with captivating home movies and a wealth of archive footage from the 1950s and ’60s… Davis’ film is a disarming underdog story that doubles as an animal-rescue advocacy tool.” -David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
