2018 TEAM PAISLEY SEARCH

The Paisley Magazine ~ For Juniors...By Juniors

We are super excited for our 2018 Team Paisley Search! Are you wondering who can apply? ALL junior riders…that show at all levels. We are not searching for the winningest riders, we are looking for kids with character! We are looking for fun, hardworking kids that exhibit good sportsmanship and a love of the sport and their horses and ponies.  


This year it will be a little bit different. Our goal is to promote and empower our team and help them grow in ways that interest them as they work with us at The Paisley Magazine. For some of you- this will mean being an Ambassador. Others may want to take on intern related roles. For some of you simply being part of the Team and handing out magazines is what you are interested in. Since we love working with our junior riders of all ages- we decided to organize things a little differently this year. If you have a specific interest (photography/writing, etc) you can specifically apply for that role. If you aren’t sure- you can say that in your essay and tell us what interests you. Don’t limit yourself by being worried that “you write well enough” or "take good enough photos". The goal of our program is to help you grow and learn and build your skills. We do not expect you to be perfect. Your desire and willingness is what matters most!      


Here is what you can apply for:

1- Ambassador 

2- Photography Intern 

3- Writing Intern 

4- Social Media Intern 

5- Junior Ambassador (young riders 8 and under) 

6- Team Member
