THE EIGHTY-DOLLAR CHAMPION Snowman, the Horse That Inspired a Nation

by | Read by Bronson Pinchot

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

In 1956, Dutch immigrant Harry de Leyer arrived late to a New Holland, Pennsylvania, horse auction, seeking a workhorse. Only eight “reject” horses remained, loaded on a trailer bound for the slaughterhouse. Eighty-dollars later, a big grey gelding with "something special in his eyes," deemed “Snowman,” began the winning bond between Harry and horse. Bronson Pinchot uses his smooth baritone to capture the heart and soul of this Cinderella story. His interpretation of de Leyer’s Dutch accent secures Harry’s matter-of-fact character. Pinchot balances his delivery as Snowman goes from roughed-up plow horse to “representing the little guy” when he becomes the underdog champion at the National Horse Show in 1958.
