Powerful, beautiful documentary about horse and man
This is a wonderful documentary, full of lots of real footage of all the persons, animals and events it describes. Harry is still alive, and is a warm and funny man as well as being a great storyteller. The relationship that grew between this man who rescued a 12 year old Amish plow horse off a trailer that was taking the horse to the glue factory is amazing to behold. Harry was (and still is) a great trainer, and Snowman (the horse) was a world champion jumper - but none of that was known when Harry bought Snowman off the death truck for $80. The movies gives a lot of insight into the impact that World War 2 had on Harry, and his struggles to find meaningful work with horses and gain respectability after coming here. The footage of them at jumping events, winning prize after prize, as Snowman rises up into the air and over the jumps like a 4-legged angel with Harry one with him on his back - it took my breath away. If you appreciate great stories about the human spirit, the beauty of horses, historical times, and the loving relationship that can grow between a human and a horse - you will love this film.
