About the Movie

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. 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.

Fresh: 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, Sep 29, 2016

Fresh: 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, Sep 27, 2016

Fresh: 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, Sep 28, 2016
