Ask Alexandra Crown : What are the main differences between the European and American training systems?

Hi Rebecca!

I have noticed that one big difference is the relationships between student. and trainer. In America students seem to be more immersed in their trainer's program, many times stabling at their trainers barn and traveling to all the same shows. In Europe I feel like there is a more independent relationship, with students working with their trainer but also doing a bit of their own thing.
Thanks for the question!
