About the Wentworth Hunt Club

The Wentworth Hunt is one of ten recognized hunts in New England, starting its first hunt in 1976.

Hunting takes place primarily during the fall months after the field crops have been harvested. In the spring, we host spring roading to train our young hounds and start getting the experienced members of our hound pack in shape for the fall season. Members and guests are invited to our hunts and spring roading. Click here for more information.

Our hunt is active throughout the year whether we are actively hunting or not. Our hounds are always in training. We have hound walks open to members and guests on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays when we are not hunting. We also have fundraising activities such as clinics and our Hunter Pace Series. Hunt Committees direct these events and hunt volunteers make them successful. Fundraisers help with the various hunt expenses.

The focus of the Wentworth Hunt is fun and safety. Foxhunting is a family sport and we welcome all to take part, either in the saddle, as a foot follower, or by car. On a brisk fall day nothing is better than listening to the hounds give voice on the line of a scent and enjoying the fellowship of the chase.

We are a Drag Hunt

Wentworth Hunt is a drag hunt. This means that people on horseback or on foot lay a scent for our hounds to follow. Being a drag hunt means Wentworth Hunt can define a course through the day’s territory that respects landowners’ fields, farms, and boundaries. Having control over the hunt course also allows us to choose routes that guarantee the best footing, jumps, and vantage points to watch our hounds at work. The result is that every outing with Wentworth Hunt is wonderful combination of safety and fun!
