American Cowboy interns are introduced to the full magazine experience and will work with a small staff of experienced editors in a very hands-on environment. Interns can expect to hit the ground running and are involved in every aspect of the magazine’s production, from reviewing pitches and writing articles to photo research and social media. Each day will bring new challenges and new assignments, and interns will work closely with the editors to truly grow as well-rounded magazine journalists. Some of American Cowboy’s editors also work on Spin To Win Rodeo magazine, and if you are interested, you’ll have the opportunity to help that team as well.
About American Cowboy: American Cowboy celebrates the past and the present of the West with content about lifestyle, travel, culture, and great people, all highlighted with gorgeous photography.
Our company, Active Interest Media, owns many of the large equine titles, including EQUUS, Horse&Rider, Dressage Today, The Trail Rider, and Spin To Win Rodeo.
