Careers & Internships
The Chronicle of the Horse offers an editorial internship for people interested in horses and journalism.
Normal hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 to 5, with some flexibility possible. Interns will work in our Middleburg, Va., office; telecommuting is not possible. Some weekends are spent on assignment. Rolling internships available.
Compensation is $7.25/hour or academic credit. Housing is the responsibility of the intern; we will assist in your search. A car is necessary.
Most of the editorial staff at the Chronicle started their careers as interns. The internship is a great fit for college graduates as well as top college students. Graduates of our internship program now work at news outlets like Eventing, In Stride, The Horse, Condé Naste Traveler, Horse-Journal and CBC. Other former interns are now working in fields of equine photography and public relations, and others work as freelance writers.
In the past interns have written cover stories for The Chronicle of the Horse magazine, produced behind-the-scenes videos at events, blogged for chronofhorse.com and pitched ideas for projects to the editorial staff that we helped them carry out.
We are currently accepting applications for interns to begin Jan. 1.
Emailed applications are preferred. Please send résumé, including cover letter, equestrian background, writing sample and availability to:
