Program Description

Event Details

Watch the documentary and then meet the filmmaker.  The Clarke County Library will be offering a special showing of the documentary Harry & Snowman followed by a virtual interactive Q and A session with filmmaker Ron Davis.

Dutch immigrant, Harry DeLeyer, journeyed to the United States after World War II and developed a transformative relationship with a 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. (from IMBD)
