|A twist of fate brings a man and horse together in this remarkable true story w available in a new version adapted by the author of the Marguerite Henry's Ponies of Chincoteague series. Swman, an Amish plow horse, was bound for the meat market when Harry deLeyer, a Long Island riding instructor, spotted him at auction. After making eye contact with the gentle giant deLeyer decided to purchase him for $80. At first, Swman was just a horse that children rode during lessons, but when deLeyer sold him to a neighbor, the horse had other ideas. He would jump the high fences so he could return home. Harry then began training Swman as a show jumper. Less than two years out of the plow fields, Swman won the 1958 horse show jumping Triple Crown--the American Horse Shows Association Horse of the Year, Professional Horseman's Association Champion, and Champion of Madison Square Garden's Diamond Jubilee. Swman was inducted into the Show Jumping Hall of Fame in 1992.|
