Exclusive screening of Nantucket and Prescott Film Festival Winner Harry and Snowman
Wellington, FL. January 5, 2015 – As equestrians from around the world head to Wellington, Florida for the winter, the Equestrian Aid Foundation is offering an exclusive screening of award winning documentary, Harry and Snowman.
The Harry and Snowman advance movie screening will take place on Sunday, February 21st at the Global Dressage Stadium at 13500 South Shore Blvd. The Luminary Award, which yearly is bestowed upon an individual who is committed to the betterment of horse sports and the people within the community, will be presented to Harry de Leyer.
The money raised will go to support EAF’s mission to help equestrian professionals in their time of need. Guests will enjoy a variety of picnic style food trucks, popcorn, ice cream and cocktails while experiencing Harry de Leyer’s Cinderella story.
Harry and Snowman is a feature length documentary about international show jumping rider Harry de Leyer and his horse Snowman. Snowman was an old Amish plow horse that Harry rescued off a truck bound for a meat and glue factory. In less than two years after his rescue, the man and his horse were the national show jumping champions and had become national celebrities.
“We are excited to be hosting a fun, family friendly evening that we hope will bring together people from both the community and the equestrian world,” said President of the Equestrian Aid Foundation, Stephanie Riggio Bulger. “EAF would love to share with all of Wellington this remarkable story that has been able to touch the hearts of a nation.”
In additional to General Admission, VIP tickets and tables will be available for purchase to all attendees. For more information or to order tickets, please visit https://harryandsnowman.eventbrite.com.
