“Equine fans: Gallop, don’t trot to Ron Davis’ winning documentary HARRY & SNOWMAN, which recounts the inspiring story of an underdog show horse, his tenacious trainer and their rise to fame in the late 1950s”—L.A. Times. “The Snowman of HARRY & SNOWMAN is a horse that melts the heart”—N.Y. Times. 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 nation’s blue bloods. 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. Unrated. 93 Min.
