SEATTLE (July 19, 2013) – Seattle-area Animal Communicator (Pet Psychic) Joan Ranquet is credited with saving a Fjord pony that had fallen into a 70-foot ravine and was missing for more than a day. The rescue search involved eight agencies, 65 people and a pet psychic. Fortunately, Gemma, the 4-year-old Fjord pony, walked out unharmed.

“Without the horse communicator, I don’t know that we would have ever found the horse,” said Barbara Linstedt, who owns Saddle Rock Stables and the neighboring pasture where the pony went missing from.

“When I connected with Gemma, I had a sense that she was stuck, she could see green all around her, she could sense horses in the distance, yet, she couldn’t see them,” said Ranquet. “I could hear traffic in the distance but what was really surprising was the sound of water splashing. I kept hearing like a loud stream, almost like being in a carwash!”

After hearing that, Linstedt immediately thought of one place they hadn’t searched yet, which was over the ledge where Gemma had gotten herself trapped. Rescue workers with the Washington State Animal Response Team secured a harness around Gemma and pulled her the 70 feet up to safety.

Ranquet is happy to report that Gemma is doing great since returning home, and is back to training and enjoying her life!
