The Snowman rags-to-riches story began when rejected horses at an auction were being loaded onto a van bound for the slaughterhouse. A kind riding instructor named Harry deLeyer thought this one skinny horse showed enough spark to catch his eye. He offered $80 for the gelding and brought him home as a lesson horse. The students loved him and called him "Snowman." But when the riding instructor sold him to a local doctor, Snowman kept jumping fences and returning to Harry. Recognizing his talent, deLeyer began training him for the show ring. Snowman became a national champion and celebrity and was inducted into show jumping's Hall of Fame.
