Ask Alexandra Crown : When do you think you will be ready to become a professional rider and run in 5* shows? What is your goal for this?

Hi Lauren!

I'm not sure I can give an exact timeline for that. I just moved up to the 3* level, so hopefully I can continue progressing and within the next few years move up to the 5* level. I am going to continue competing as an amateur throughout my time in university, but my goal is to eventually become a professional. I would love to one day jump in Nations Cups and in championships for the United States team, as well as to jump some of the biggest grand prixs.

Thank you for the question!
