Breyer Traditional Series Snowman Famous Show Jumper.
A big gray horse with an even bigger heart, Snowman rose from obscurity to become one of show jumping's most beloved heroes.Bound for the slaughterhouse, bony, beat up and filthy, this one plow horse showed enough spark to catch Harry de Leyer's eye.
Quiet enough to be a lesson horse, the new rescue was a hit with children, who dubbed him "Snowman." But when sold to a local doctor, he kept jumping fences and returning to de Leyer. Recognizing his talent, de Leyer began training him for the show ring, where he made his claim to fame.
Even in retirement, Snowman remained a popular attraction at de Leyer's farm, where he died in 1977. Fifteen years later, he was inducted into show jumping's Hall of Fame.
