Critic Reviews for Harry & Snowman
In the film, a student of Mr. deLeyer's recalls some of his advice: "Throw your heart over the top, and your horse will follow." "Harry & Snowman" makes you want to do the same.
A modest but touching documentary about two underdogs who took each other to the big time.
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.
Audience Reviews for Harry & Snowman
Partnership flourished between Harry the man and Snowman the lovely horse. Modern horsemanship would do well to watch and re-learn - the horse with the beautiful action, allowed to express itself and move freely; soft hands and reins, soft contact; just a thick snaffle bit; not even a drop noseband; and what a pleasure they were to watch, Harry the rider sitting quietly, both perfectly relaxed, and producing harmony in motion. And their myriad fans loved it. No heart attacks, no horrible injuries, no overbending, no sick short lungeing with the horse strapped into a constricted pose, no fighting. Snowman, a character in his own right, an old soul, intelligent and possessing a sense of humour, was respected, and had a happy life away from the showring, too; he was included in the lives of Harry's family and eight children, right up to the very touching ending. As Harry recognises, Snowman provided all of them with security, careers and a prosperous future. Harry & Snowman represented the American dream, which they created for themselves out of understanding and true friendship.
