The movie tells the story of immigrant Harry deLeyer and the plow horse named Snowman he rescued from slaughter. Paying just eighty dollars for Snowman, in less than two years, Harry & Snowman went on to win the triple crown of show jumping, astonishing a nation.
This is a moving documentary about relationships, between horse and man, and family relationships too. The story of the rescued horse is amazing, and the story of Harry de Leyer and his family is remarkable in its own way.
This darker side of the man who became known as the "Galloping Grandfather" in the 1970s lends a bitter taste to the sweetness of director Ron Davis' documentary, but it also gives it a more honest and human feel.
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.
