FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Dec. 18, 2018 – The Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) has selected Amanda Terbrusch as a 2019 media intern. IHSA Media interns gain practical experience assisting the public relations committee and the communications team.

Terbrusch hails from Ridgefield, Connecticut and is currently in her junior year of studies at the University of New Hampshire (UNH). She is pursuing a major in Communications and a minor in Equine Management.

Terbrusch grew up taking lessons and catch-riding hunters and jumpers. This is her third year on the UNH IHSA team and she rides in the Novice division on the flat and over fences. This fall, Terbrusch took on more responsibility when she was elected to be one of the UNH IHSA team captains. Terbrusch did not show as a junior, so she enjoys the opportunity to compete in the IHSA.

When not in school, Terbrusch spends her time as a working student and riding at JT Farm in South Salem, New York. As the IHSA media intern, she will be contributing to the IHSA featured riders, horses and alumni.

“I am super excited to get started with this opportunity," Terbrusch said.
