Harry & Snowman movie trailer
EQ’s Summer issue features the exciting story of how a long-lost film was recently rediscovered and has emerged to critical acclaim. It’s the story that Life magazine called “The greatest nags-to-riches story since Black Beauty.” Dutch immigrant, Harry deLeyer, journeyed to the United States after World War II and developed a transformative relationship with the 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.
