To register for the webinar, please visit.
The Eighty-Dollar Champion tells the story of horse trainer and Dutch immigrant Harry de Leyer, who met the former plow horse he would eventually name Snowman on a cold, bleak winter afternoon in 1956 on a rickety truck bound for the slaughterhouse. Harry recognized the spark in the white horse’s eye and bought him for eighty dollars. Harry and Snowman soon became a champion show jumping duo and their story inspired hope in the hearts of a Cold War-era America. The Eighty-Dollar Champion is a dramatic and inspiring tale of Harry and Snowman?s rise to stardom in the show-jumping circuit.
