Working on my Level 3 Parelli Auditions - Finally!

I am putting this out here to you all and the universe as a way to force the issue with myself. As of this morning, I have decided that I've let far too much time slip away with my auditions for a variety of typical reasons that I doubt I need to go into. Therefore, as a way to have a goal, as a way to be motivated, I am officially working on my Level 3 Parelli Auditions.

A few things come to mind when thinking about doing this.  I really dislike being on video. This is a total body image problem and I know that it is another thing in my life that I have to deal with (again). That said, watching the video will be like judging and I believe that I will be able to be objective. I also far preferred the old auditions where you did an entire level on one tape. Those felt more like I accomplished something I guess but, this is out of my control. I also plan to dress the part by dragging out my breeches and other horse-related attire.  I think dressing the part is part of the success piece.  If you recall the last post with the idea of fake it until you become it.  Well, becoming it is also dressing the part which should make me feel the part (kind of like how I noted in the last post that the arena felt like a proper space).  I know, totally mental! LOL  (I just hope my breeches still fit.) All well, here we [my horses and I] go! Feel free to check-in and keep me accountable!

Awesome! I look forward to following along.

I too have felt the recent need to regroup, look at my self-assessment checklist, and fill in those holes so that I can complete my Level 2 Freestyle audition. (I've passed the on-line half.)

Go us!
