Description

When Dutch immigrant Harry deLeyer locked eyes with an Amish plow horse headed to slaughter, little did he know that both their lives would be changed forever. Harry paid $80 for the horse, named him Snowman and in less than two years they rose to become the national show jumping champions and were the Cinderella story and media darlings of late 1950's and 1960's. They were featured twice in Life magazine and the subject of three best selling books, including the 2011 NY Times Best-Seller, The Eighty-Dollar Champion. Snowman forever transformed the life of Harry and his family and now at 85, Harry still rides and trains the horses he loves. -JM
