Video of the Miranda Foundation horses
Video recorded during the first two weeks of the month of March of 2010. The horses were only three months in the Pla de l'Orri.You will be able to see a small tracking of the arrival of two horses to the Foundation: The Sherwood (white horse) that arrives in the morning and the Bonjour (brown horse) that arrives the same day but at dusk. You can see how circumstances make them join and make friends during the first few days. After all, each one will end up in a different subgroup of horses.In the last part of the video you can see a few pictures of the social work of the Foundation from previous years.
Territory of the Miranda Foundation
Plan de l'Orri
The Miranda Foundation has its summer headquarters in Alt Berguedà, in the Serra de Catllaràs, in a Protected Area of Natural Interest of the Natura 2000 Network that the Foundation turned into a wildlife refuge, with a conservation project premature forest, of the gallfer and of the calcareous moles.
El Pla de l'Orri is a farm of 103 hectares with a privileged pasture in the middle of forests of beech, black pine, red pine, boxwood and hawthorn, with a view of the Pyrenees and Montserrat. It consists of the mother farm, a smaller farm called Cortal de l'Orri and a rural classroom where we do the activities with people. It is the origin of the Project, the paradise and happiness of the horses.
The winter headquarters is at El Garraf, where we graze more than 1.000 hectares of the Parc del Garraf and the properties of Can Ràfols dels Caus, Josep Camps and Xavier Ribes.
These spaces mostly correspond to the municipality of Olivella. A vast territory of Mediterranean steppe and forest where the horses do good cleaning and fire prevention while also being nourished near the sea. The Garraf is the expansion.
The headquarters of Cadí is the territory we have opened up to municipalities such as Arsèguel in Alt Urgell where we develop a project to recover pastures and memory of the rural world, with the support of horses as agents of biodiversity and fire prevention.

Anna Álvarez Crispi: Transactional Systemic Coach. Horse-assisted trainer. Facilitator of horse-assisted systemic constellations. Nurse and Kinesiologist. Since 2002 I have been participating as a teacher in the Postgraduate Course in “Emotional Education and Welfare” at the “Faculty of Pedagogy of the University of Barcelona”, and currently in the Barcelona Activa programs on “Empathy”.
My passion for nature and animals, and my interest in combining health and well-being with this, have led me to know and experience different tools focused on human development, contemplating both the personal and professional facet. By conducting horse-assisted coaching and training courses I discovered this huge potential for horses to respond to their environment and our stimuli.
From here to think that they could function, as representatives in the constellations, was only a step. Whenever I see horses answering in a constellation, I get more questions than answers, but in this moment, I can't help but perceive that "all of us" are united by a connective tissue and that we are "affected", not only by our actions but also by our intentions and our feelings. This can be at the same time terrifying or the great hope that another way of relating, more respectful, loving and peaceful is possible from the present moment!
