Learn to Hunt
Free – Mounted Hunt Clinic – FULL as of 4/18. Auditors still welcome – and you will also receive a free capping certificate if you audit (come without a horse).
Saturday, May 13, 2017 11 AM
Tuckaway Farm, Lee, NH
This FREE clinic is a great way to introduce yourself and your future foxhunting horse to the sport in a friendly, instructive environment. There will be a short lecture covering safety and etiquette after which riders can go out and learn to ride in groups and common field situations experienced during the hunt. All jumping is optional. The clinic is a super way to introduce your horse to being ridden in a group situation simulating the hunt as well as to our hounds.

Powder Major Farm Conserved for Riding!
Read about the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests’ (SPNHF) successful effort to preserve one of our traditional hunt territories, Powder Major Farm. The Goss family is selling the land we ride on when we cross the river from Tuckaway Farm, the farm where we typically have our Stirrup Cup, to SPNHF. The land will remain open to the public for hiking and riding. And for foxhunting. Read more about the successful campaign here.
A Warm Thank You to Suddenly Still Photography
The Wentworth Hunt would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Suddenly Still Photography. James Mertz documents foxhunting in New England through his incredible pictures and this year he has generously sponsored custom landowner gifts. The hunt is lucky to have such a strong community of supporters. Please visit his website to see amazing photos of the Wentworth Hunt in action.
