Hunter Paces

Wentworth Hunt hosts up to three hunter paces each year: Spring, Summer, and Fall, each held at a different territory. Hunter paces are a great way to ride Wentworth Hunt’s beautiful territories at your own pace. All hunter pace locations provide riders with up to ten miles of beautiful wooded trails and fields, with plenty of natural huntsy jumps off to the side of the main trail.

Participants ride out in staggered pairs or teams of up to six riders. The course includes a five minute stop in the middle for “Stirrup Cup” with drinks provided. Refreshments are available throughout the event including a light lunch starting around 12:30pm.

Riders choose competitive hilltop or field, or non-competitive divisions. Six ribbons are awarded in competitive divisions with placings based on ride times that are closest to optimal hunt time. Ride in the competitive division in all of our paces and be eligible for series end awards!
