Windhorse Presents Harry and Snowman Film, February 12

Windhorse is very excited to present a benefit screening of the documentary film Harry and Snowman, Sunday, February 12, at 6:00 pm at the Emerson Center for the Arts & Culture. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under, and can be purchased online at Ticketriver.com or at the door. Doors open at 5:00 pm. Come early and enjoy a reception and silent auction in the lobby to benefit Windhorse Equine Learning.

Harry and Snowman follows the Cinderella story of Dutch immigrant Harry deLeyer and his transformative relationship with a broken down Amish plow horse named Snowman that he rescued off a slaughter truck bound for the glue factory. In less than two years, Harry and Snowman would go on to win the triple crown of show jumping, beating the nation’s blue bloods and traveling the world together as they became the media darlings of the 1950s and 60s. Their chance meeting at a Pennsylvania horse auction saved them both and crafted a friendship that would last a lifetime, as told by 86-year-old Harry first-hand for the very first time.

This is a family-friendly movie that will capture your heart. Bring the kids and make a night of it, while supporting a great cause — helping kids and teens in our community experience the joy of being with horses while learning new skills and gaining confidence and self-esteem.

This benefit screening is sponsored by:

    I watched Snowman compete many times in my hometown starting when I was just a young girl, ten years old. He was so happy and calm as he jumped, yet so skillful and strong. Harry de Leyer was also a joy to watch. He rode with his horse’s best interest all the time, riding Snowman on a loose rein and giving him his head over jumps so he could stretch as much as he wanted. This team was always out to enjoy themselves and please the crowd. The two of them showed the world what can happen when there is a real connection and love between and horse and a human.
