Victory Ranch

We took a Saturday afternoon and scheduled a time with Vicki out at Victory Ranch, South of Ottumwa. Victory Ranch is the brainchild of Vicki Baum, our friend and a lady who goes to our church, which happens to be right across the road from Victory Ranch. 

 Vicki and Jazz (the horse), and my 4 year old checking the horse out. 

Learning how to brush Jazz down. Part of coming to Victory Ranch is being 
able to help the horses, and help the Ranch out. 

V is for Victory

Getting ready to ride. 

Such a happy guy. First time on a horse, by himself. When he was 3 he 
took a horse ride with grandma at the farm. 

The welcome center, with my hubby's logo. Bible study is held in here on Tuesday evenings. 

Learning to ride with no hands. He decided to ride without the saddle and did great! I think he was more ready to do that than mommy was to let him do that. There's no stopping this kid! 

The saddle fit him perfectly, and I think he was the first one to try it out. Jazz was perfectly calm, and he's really good with kids, which is why Victory Ranch exists- to help children and families. 

While little man rode around the corral, I took photos until the camera battery died, and hubby pulled some weeds. There's always a long list of things that need to be done at Victory Ranch. It's run by our friend Vicki, who's had this ranch on her heart for a very long time, so it's awesome to see it become a reality.
