Fascinating Historical Documentary for Horse Lovers
24 July 2016 | by Alicia BurchamSee all my reviews

I was actually surprised at how much I enjoyed Harry and Snowman. It's a tale of Harry and his horse Snowman who he rescued from being sent to the Glue factory. They became unlikely friends and spend a lifetime together reaching great heights against the odds. However this documentary is much more than the historical life and times of a man and his horse; it's about Harry, his past, and his present. The film is told by his sons, daughters, grand-daughter, and of course Harry himself. You get a real in depth look into his past starting with WWII in Holland and how he and his father were part of the resistance. The movie allows you to dive into every triumph and fall of Harry's life. Harry and Snowman had me captivated the whole way through. Whether you are a horse-lover, athlete, or simply someone who enjoys a fine documentary, this film will most definitely be for you. It had me laughing, cheering, and even crying. Do not miss out on this beautiful film that is perfect for all ages.
