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 and they became famous 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 - THE NEW YORK TIMES

"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."
Gary Goldstein - LOS ANGELES TIMES

"The engaging HARRY & SNOWMAN shows the impact of a rescue animal on the man who saw his neglected qualities. It's also a succinct demonstration of the difference between a livelihood and a life's work."
Serena Donadoni - VILLAGE VOICE
