Turning 21 is always special, so for his 21st birthday Rafael went snowboarding with his friends to Chile, El Colorado. While snowboarding Rafael saw a beautiful horse stuck in snow. At first Rafael thought that it might be a rock but very soon when he came close to it he knew it was a chestnut colored horse stuck in 4 feet of snow.
Rafael and his friend decided to help the poor creature. They pulled the horse out of the snow and guided the horse for five hours. They located it’s heard six miles down the mountain. He didn’t spend his 21st birthday the way he imagined but instead he did something amazing in the process.
Rafael wrote this on his social media page "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.”
