Snowboarders Rescue A Stranded Horse Trapped In 4 Feet Snow.

A Birthday Adventure Takes an Unexpected Turn

Celebrating his 21st birthday, Rafael went snowboarding with his friend in El Colorado, Chile. It was the first storm of the year, so they were really excited to slide down through that 4-foot deep snow.

While he was going down the mountain, he noticed a strange looking rock from afar… but then suddenly realized it was a horse trapped in the deep snow! Thinking of the possibility that this poor equine might die, Rafael and his friend sprung into action. They gave the stranded horse something to eat while digging in the deep snow so they could bring her to safety. Then they led the horse six miles down the mountain and help reunite her with her owner.

Watch the video below and see how their act of kindness saved a horse’s life:


Rafael wrote about the harrowing rescue on The Inertia: “I have been through a lot in life, and through it all I have realized that it’s well worth it to watch out for others — whether they are human or not. And that’s what me and my riding partner did. What we learned when we finally reunited the horse with its owner was that the horse had been missing for four days. Hopefully this inspires you to get out there and not only live your life to the fullest, but to help others do the same.”
