Events & Shows

Wentworth Hunt hosts many different events each year. We endeavor to provide activities and learning opportunities for riders of all abilities and experiences. Our goal is to offer fun events that introduce riders to our club, to our super-nice members, and to the joys of fox hunting.

Information about our events will be available here on our website and on our Facebook page. If you would like to be added to our mailing list to receive emails about Wentworth Hunt activities, please contact our hunt secretary at Secretary@WentworthHunt.org or fill out the Mailing List form on the right side of this page.


Hunter Paces

Wentworth Hunt hosts up to three hunter paces each year: Our Spring Hunter Pace in late May or early June, our Conservation Hunter Pace in August, and our Fall Foliage and Poker Run Pace in October. Hunter paces are a great way to ride Wentworth Hunt territories at your own pace to see how wonderful riding out can be. To learn more about our hunter paces, please click here.


Clinics

In the spring and summer months, Wentworth offers a variety of clinics. In the spring, we offer a mounted hunt clinic to help build rider knowledge and confidence riding out with hounds in a hunt field. In the late summer, we offer a learn-to-hunt clinic for children with little or no hunting experience. This is followed a few weeks later by our Children’s/Juniors’ Hunt, a hunt specially tailored for our junior riders, who ride for free as our guests!

In the late spring, we have wonderful Booli Selmayr, clinician, trainer, CCI 4* rider, and formally a professional whipper-in, conduct a cross country clinic. Booli’s fabulous clinics are open to foxhunters, eventers, and other riders looking to improve their cross country riding.

Wentworth Hunt Dressage Show

Wentworth Hunt hosts a dressage show in the spring. Why are we interested in dressage? Because we believe dressage is an essential building block for all equestrian pursuits, as per the following definition:

Dressage (n.):

  1. The art or method of training a horse in obedience, understanding, and precision of movement.
  2. Proof that every horse has a chocolate side.

Hunt Ball and Silent Auction

Every year, Wentworth celebrates the end of our season with a Hunt Ball. Dinner, dancing, and our silent auction are all on offer at the ball. This is a wonderful time to relax and celebrate before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. And we promise you will find some great gift items on offer at the silent auction. Please join us!
