The horse had a hidden talent that nobody knew!
This short clip contains actual footage of a horse who inspired hope. The video shows clips of Snowman, a rescued plow horse that became a show jumping champion. During his career, he was known as “The Cinderella Horse” due to his “rags to riches” story.
He was used for farm work and after it was badly treated it was sent to be sold to an auction. Nobody showed any interest in him and the horse was bound to be slaughtered but what we think and what God’s plans are usually don’t coincide. Nobody wanted to buy the beat-up horse. Harry de Leyer from New York arrived late at the auction and he was looking for school horses but couldn’t find any, just the ones that were waiting to be loaded into trucks and be sent for slaughter.
When Harry saw Snowman it was just like love at first sight, he immediately decided to buy it at the price of $80. He used it as a lesson horse for children but the horse had a hidden talent nobody knew. De Leyer watched it once jump over the fence and decided to train the horse as a show jumper. Together they wrote history. They won hundreds of blue ribbons, they appeared on television and in life magazines and showed the world that sometimes dreams can come true. Watch the inspiring video!
