Harry paid eighty dollars for the horse and named him Snowman. In less than two years, Harry and Snowman went on to win the triple crown of show jumping, beating the nations blue bloods. They were famous for their day 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.

What the critics are saying:
Los Angeles Times
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.
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.
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.
