The Wentworth Hunt is one of ten recognized hunts in New England, starting its first hunt in 1976.
Hunting takes place primarily during the fall months after the field crops have been harvested, though we will also host a few spring hunts to train our young hounds and starting getting the pack in shape for the fall season. Actual hunting is a result of a twelve month program of hound training and fundraising, such as our Dressage Show and our Hunt Pace Series. Hunt Committees direct these events and hunt volunteers make them successful. Fundraisers help with the various hunt expenses.
The focus of the Wentworth Hunt is fun and safety. Foxhunting is a family sport and we welcome all to take part, either in the saddle, as a foot follower, or by car. On a brisk fall day nothing is better than listening to the hounds give voice on the line of a scent and enjoying the fellowship of the chase.
