The horse was never meant to be a champion.
The de Leyer family first met the horse just as he was about to be sold to a factory, and saved him from a horrible fate. Sold for only eighty dollars, the de Leyers intended to use him as a training horse at their riding school for girls. But as the de Leyers came to love the horse they named Snowman, they discovered he had an incredible talent--for jumping! Even when Snowman was sold to another family, he jumped fences to gallop all the way home to the family who loved him. The de Leyers trained Snowman until the horse went on to become an internationally recognized show-jumping champion.
In this heartwarming picture book with beautifully rendered illustrations, Snowman's story will inspire young readers and animal lovers to hope, live their dreams, and persevere until they succeed!
