Snowman

$40.00
A big gray horse with an even bigger heart, Snowman rose from obscurity to become one of show jumping's most beloved heroes! His rags-to-riches story began in 1956, when Harry de Leyer, a Long Island riding instructor, went shopping for potential school horses in Pennsylvania. Arriving too late for the auction, he spotted "rejects" being loaded onto a van bound for the slaughterhouse. Though bony, beat up and filthy, this plow horse showed enough spark to catch his eye. Soon, Snowman was meeting and beating the country's best jumpers everywhere he went. He'd clear anything from a 7'2 obstacle to another horse - and do it with care. Yet this child-friendly, 16h giant could still win a leadline class on the same day as sweeping an open jumper championship.
The Breyer Traditional Series offers an unmatched level of realism and attention to detail appreciated by children and adults alike. Each 1:9 scale model is meticulously hand-painted, so no two are exactly alike! Ages 8 and up.
