Wentworth Hunt is an ALL Volunteer hunt. Members are expected to get involved with hunt activities and volunteer to help with our various fund-raisers, territory preparations, hound walks, and other hunt related events. There are many different ways in which to get involved. It is truly a very rewarding part of being a hunt member, and helps you to get the most out of your membership. And as always, many hands make light work.
Below are a few of our volunteer opportunities. There are others, too, so keep an eye on your email or check our Calendar to see how you can help!
Wentworth Hunt has hound walks during the off season when we are not actively hunting. Normally these walks occur on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 10:00 AM from the kennels at Tuckaway Farm in Lee, NH. These are a great opportunity to learn more about our beloved hounds, learn their names, their personalities, and their abilities, and perhaps even discuss our hounds with Rachel, our Huntsman! Please check your email or our Calendar to learn about dates and times for hound walks.
Territory work may include marking trails, cleaning up downed branches, or repairing jumps. This is very important work as it allows us to hunt safely. It’s also very fun and sometimes members bring their toys.
Wentworth hosts up to three hunter paces each year. These are very fun activities and a great opportunity to meet fellow riders in relaxed and informal setting. Volunteers are always needed.
Wentworth kennels are located at Tuckaway Farm in Lee, NH. Clean up and repair activities are listed on our calendar and are emailed to members. Please consider helping out. Hounds are the reason we hunt and without them, there is no hunt. Also our hounds are adorable!
