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.
A man and horse save each other in moving docu.
Horse lovers will not be able to contain themselves. Those who don't care much for horses will still admire the dedication this guy showed to a creature that was deemed worthless, and how the beast let it be known that it was loved.
Director Ron Davis uses entertaining home movies, newsreels, and old clippings to bring Harry and Snowman's story to life.
This is a moving documentary about relationships, between horse and man, and family relationships too. The story of the rescued horse is amazing, and the story of Harry de Leyer and his family is remarkable in its own way.
This darker side of the man who became known as the "Galloping Grandfather" in the 1970s lends a bitter taste to the sweetness of director Ron Davis' documentary, but it also gives it a more honest and human feel.
There are mentions of De Leyer's less savory qualities, such as being a taskmaster with his children, but these faults are forgiven in the movie's overly nostalgic glow.
You don't need to be an equine aficionado to fall in love with both of the title characters in this breezy and uplifting documentary.
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.
