Transhumance of Salt Paths

Fall 2019

The Miranda Foundation organizes the transhumance of 45 horses along the Camins de Sal to the new pasture area of ​​Coll de Nargó

From October 30 to November 3, the Miranda Foundation accompanies a herd of recovered horses in Transhumance, with the professional guidance of Cavalls Guiabosc Baridà and expert volunteers. We will go from Pla de l'Orri ( PEIN Serra de Catllaràs, Alt Berguedà), headquarters of the Foundation since 2008, to the municipality of Coll de Nargó (Alt Urgell), territory of dinosaurs, imposing and grandiose, following the Ways

de Sal - Camí dels Bonshomes, Trementinaries and smugglers - in a journey divided into 5 stages.

The 45 horses, 35 from FM and 10 from Guiabosc Baridà Horses, accompanied by 9 volunteers , will cross between Cadí and Pedraforca for

reaching new territories, going through administrative and bureaucratic difficulties and recovering an ancestral practice, a way of life

which is being lost, as the abandonment of the rural world worsens. Horses show us a fragmented territory, a society dependent and disconnected from the territory.

This fall’s transhumance will not be open to participants as on other occasions, but will be done with a team of expert volunteers. We hope to open to the public this Transhumance and other movements with horses starting next spring!

The time has come to look to the future of the Foundation, in a new model formed by a network of pasture spaces that connect the

territory, people and horses. This new axis of connectivity of the territory is structured through pasture spaces, the original

in Pla de l'Orri, the one in Parc del Garraf, the RNC in Boumort and now, the new headquarters in Coll de Nargó.
