Are you sad the hunter paces for 2021 have come to an end? Why not join us for hunting! We promise you will have as much fun, if not more, hunting. PLUS… there are hounds! And who doesn’t love watching hounds?!? Click here for more information about joining us as a guest or member!

Please join us next year for our hunter pace series. Wentworth Hunt’s hunter paces are a great opportunity to ride our beautiful hunt territories with your own group, 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 for those who wish to jump.

Participants ride out in staggered pairs or teams of up to six riders. The courses include a five minute stop in the middle for “Stirrup Cup” with drinks provided. Refreshments are available throughout the event.

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!

Spring Hunter Pace

Our first pace in our 2021 series was held at Branch Hill Farm, Milton Mills, NH, on June 6th. Branch Hill Farm, one of our hunt territories, is a wonderful location that includes a mix of woods and fields with very good footing throughout. All jumps on course are inviting natural, hunt-type jumps with a maximum height of 3′, all gapable.

SMILE EVERYONE! Here are the results!

Congratulations to all riders! It truly was a spectacular day and a fabulous ride!

Summer Hunter Pace

Thank you to all riders who joined us for our Summer Hunter Pace at Branch Hill Farm, Milton Mills, NH, on July 10th. Riders enjoyed the amazing weather (not too hot!), great footing, minimal bugs (we were surprised, too!), and incredilby fun course winding through woods and fields. Branch Hill is always a fun territory and the jumps were icing on the cake!

From all the smiles, it was clear that everyone had a glorious time riding, jumping, and spending a beautiful summer day with friends! Result from the pace are below!

Conservation Hunter Pace

Our third hunter pace in our 2021 series was our Conservation Hunter Pace. This pace was held at wonderful Fine Nest Farm in Raymond, NH, on August 7.

Why is this called our “Conservation Hunter Pace”? Hunt members Cody Cramer and Dana Zulager have developed a territory that has interconnected trails through wooded areas that cover conservancy land along the Pawtuckaway River, known locally as the Stingy River. One hunting loop runs through land protected by the Southeast Land Trust of New Hampshire, and we enjoy riding around several hay fields at the neighboring Sullos Farm. Over 150 acres of Fine Nest Farm is in conservation with the Bear-Paw Regional Greenways. This is a very special territory and a treat for all riders.

And what wonderful weather for our third hunter pace. Congratulations to all riders and to our field and hilltop winners! Results are below.

Fall Foliage Hunter Pace

The Fall Foliage Hunter Pace, our final hunter pace in our 2021 series, was a great success! Held on Sunday, October 10, at Tuckaway Farm in Lee, NH, this pace is always a rider favorite.

Tuckaway Farm is an incredibly beautiful territory offering a course alongside babbling brooks and working farms, through wooded trails, and across large open riding fields. This course offers wonderful views of fall foliage throughout. The footing is always great, the jumps are plentiful and of all heights (and gappable, of course), and the fall weather always provides horses and humans with the best riding conditions. Our pace riders were very happy with it all!
