Watch ‘Harry And Snowman’ At Brookfield Old Town Hall

Communities / Sep. 28, 2017 9:13am EDT

The popular film fest at the Brookfield Old Town Hall concludes this Thursday, Sept. 28 at 6 p.m. with “Harry and Snowman.”

Harry deLeyer rescues Snowman off a truck bound for the slaughterhouse, and the unlikely pair go on to rock the world of championship horse jumping. Snowman and Harry have a bond that shows up in the way the horse becomes a member of the deLeyer family, pulling a sled-full of kids in the winter, and standing as a diving platform in the summer.

The film is filled with archival footage from jumping competitions, as well as Harry’s appearances on the Dick Cavett Show and The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. One of Harry’s riding students recalled his advice: “Throw your heart over the top, and your horse will follow.”

The film series is sponsored by Gibson Engineering Co., Inc.

Mark your calendar for the Old Town Hall’s annual Harvest Dinner to be held Saturday, Oct. 21 at 6 p.m., featuring fall bounty transformed into soups, stews, stuffed peppers, spiced cabbage, side dishes, salads, several vegetarian options, and kid-friendly mac and cheese.
