Knowing the poor horse would surely die, Rafael and his friend leapt into action.
To celebrate his 21st birthday, Rafael went snowboarding with his friend in El Colorado, Chile.
In the distance, he noticed a strange-looking rock and soon realized that it was not a rock at all, but a wild horse stuck in the snow.
Knowing that the poor horse was sure to die, Rafael and his friend rushed into battle. “The incredible video documents the rescue and it looks like a still from a movie.
Rafael and his friend go straight to the magnificent brown horse and dig it out of the four feet of piled snow.
They then lead the horse six miles down the mountain, allowing it to follow them. Five hours after he was found, the horse was reunited with his herd.
Maybe Rafael didn’t celebrate his 21st birthday this way, but his version is much more soulful.
In Inertia, Raphael wrote about a terrible salvation. “I’ve been through a lot in my life, and through it all I’ve learned that it’s worth being considerate of others, whether they’re human or not.
And that’s what my riding partner and I did. When we finally reunited the horse with its owner, we learned that the horse had been missing for four days.
We hope this inspires you to not only live life to the fullest, but to help others do the same.
“If the snowboarders had not come, it is unlikely that the stuck horse would have lasted much longer.
And while skiing on the slopes could be a more enjoyable way to spend your days,” says Pease, he would have no other way.
