Harry & Snowman is a captivating documentary that follows the story of riding instructor Harry deLeyer and his remarkable tale of rescuing a white plough horse off the back of a truck, bound for the glue factory. Paying just $80 for Snowman, in less than two years, Harry and Snowman went on to win the triple crown of show jumping, astonishing a nation.

There are very few horse stories that have been able to truly touch the hearts of audiences. Like the racing career of Seabiscuit in the 1930s, Harry and Snowman captured the hearts of a nation during the 1950s and 1960s. This multi-award winning documentary will be the first time that Harry and Snowman’s remarkable and heartfelt story will be told by 85-year-old Harry himself. The film includes incredible archived footage that transports you to the triumphant moments in the dynamic duos lives.

As with all FOLA movies, the film is free and open to everyone; donations are appreciated. Popcorn will be supplied by Berkshire Bank with FOLA providing water.
