Equestrian Aid Foundation To Host Film Showing Feb. 21 In Wellington

The Equestrian Aid Foundation is offering an exclusive screening of award-winning documentary Harry & Snowman on Sunday, Feb. 21 at the Global Dressage Stadium at 13500 South Shore Blvd. in Wellington.

The Luminary Award, which is bestowed annually 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.

Harry & Snowman is a feature-length documentary about international show jumping rider de Leyer and his horse Snowman, an old Amish plow horse that de Leyer rescued off a truck bound for a meat and glue factory. In less than two years after his rescue, they were the national show jumping champions. “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,” Equestrian Aid Foundation President Stephanie Riggio Bulger said. “The EAF would love to share with all of Wellington this remarkable story that has been able to touch the hearts of a nation.”
