The email confirmation I received from Parelli indicated it would be 3-4 weeks before I would get the results of my Liberty audition.
It took a week. I opened my email yesterday and there, sitting in my Inbox, was a message from "Audtion" entitled "L3 Liberty Results." My heart skipped a beat.
I passed. With an overall score of 3++. I don't think I've stopped grinning.
Below is my scorecard:
In the comments section, the assesor wrote: Great audition Lisa, It was a pleasure to watch. You have great Rapport & an excellent connection with your horse. Nice close range spins . . . well done.
The assessor made a comment about Cricket's expression. I don't necessarily agree - I thought her expression was fine. But it's not big deal - the video quality wasn't the greatest and there were moments where Cricket had a bit of a grouchy attitude. I wasn't overly assertive with her because I was aware of the discomfort in her feet and the problems with her alignment. Overall, I don't know if I could be happier.
If you didn't see the video, here it is - just an impromptu shoot of a typical play session . . .
