Spring Roading Begins at Tuckaway Farm!
May 15, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Preparation for our informal and formal fox hunting seasons begins with Spring Roading. Roading is first time in the year our Hunt Staff exercises our hounds from horseback. The pace is walk/trot and no lines are laid. The goal is to get both hounds and staff horses into hunting fitness, and is particularly important for the young entry, as this is usually their first exposure to horses and to areas outside the kennel grounds.
Members and guests are welcome this year to come out and join our Hunt Staff. It is an excellent opportunity to leg up your horse or introduce a green horse or a new rider to hunting. If you are joining us as a guest, please contact our Hunt Secretary (Secretary@WentworthHunt.org) and pay the $20 capping fee (click here) at least 24 hours in advance. Please know that roading will not count towards your 3 hunt capping limit, so please join us whenever you can!
Please know that our roading schedule is very fluid, as territories and staff allow. Because of the uncertainty of the schedule, we may add organized trail rides and other fun events if our hounds cannot attend some functions for any reasons.
