SEPTEMBER 9th at 7:30pm
at
The United States Equestrian Team (USET)

1040 Pottersville Rd., Gladstone, NJ 07934

$20/family (up to 4 people)  
$10/person

Bring your own chairs or blankets (bleachers also available for seating)

 

About Harry & Snowman:
A documentary film from director Ron Davis   
Winner of 10 audience awards in 28 film festival screenings.
 

Harry & Snowman Trailer    

“Laced with captivating home movies and a wealth of archival footage from  the 1950s and '60s, Davis' film is a disarming underdog story that doubles as  an animal-rescue advocacy tool…a tender illustration of the bond between man and beast.”  Says the Hollywood Reporter

Excited to see this heartwarming story? Of course you are. Bring your family & friends. Help spread the news with your local barn and horse community!

This Advance Charity Screening is currently one of the only ones in NJ and all proceeds benefit Mane Stream!

Background on the Film:
The Magical Story of the Cinderella Horse

Harry & Snowman tells the story of a heartwarming friendship between Dutch immigrant Harry deLeyer and Snowman, the plow horse originally bound for slaughter, whom Harry rescues. The film explores the unforeseen champion within both of them.

In 1956, Harry rescued Snowman off a truck bound for the glue factory, paying only $80 for him. In less than two years, the duo went on to win the Triple Crown of show jumping and set world records. Along the way, a life-long and endearing friendship flourished between Harry and Snowman. It is a friendship that changes both of their lives forever.

Harry may have rescued Snowman from slaughter as an unwanted horse; but he will tell you today that Snowman made a winner of Harry. Harry & Snowman is a story of the power of love, and the bond of friendship.

Breyer's Pony Up! Discover Horses Festival

A New Breyer Festival for Families!

Save the Date because Mane Stream will be there with 2 of our hard-working horses!! Which ones? You'll have to check back to see.

Breyer hosts the first ever Pony Up! event on Saturday, June 18th at U.S. Equestrian Team headquarters in Gladstone, NJ. Pony Up! is a new concept created by Breyer to help introduce children 13 and under to the world of horses! Pony Up is designed to provide parents and kids with a fun, hands-on experience into the world of horses and model horses. Tickets include all activities and a Classics scale Breyer model - a $20 value!

Meet the horses that inspired our models, take part in fun model horse activities like customizing and repairing your models and participate in kids jumping contests with fun prizes! Parents, talk to local barns and model horse experts for information about how to encourage your children to expand their love and knowledge of horses. Local barns will be onsite with information about riding lessons and kids programs. A perfect family day out! Don't miss the face painting, magicians, a craft activity tent featuring Stablemates paint-your-own-model-horses and play tables!!

Model horse hobby workshops will also be offered to introduce your little Breyer fan to the world of model horses. Take classes like: Introduction to Customizing, Repairing model horses, Create Your Dream Horse, Halter Making and Creating a Horse Suncatcher.

Special guest horses will include Breyer portrait models Brookside Pink Magnum owned by Rebecca McGregor of Rebedon Farm of Phillipsburg, NJ and Oration owned by Tranquillity Farm of Chester, NJ. Autograph sessions and meet & greets with horses and owners will be held, and equine breed demonstrations in the arena will feature Arabians, American Quarter Horses, ponies, and draft horses. Pony rides will be offered along with a cute petting zoo. More guests to be announced!
