Hunter Paces

Wentworth Hunt is offering THREE hunter paces in 2022! Click on the pace name below for details about each pace. Entries are OPEN for each pace!! Sign up by clicking the links below!

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 hunt-sy jumps off to the side of the main trail for those who wish to jump.


The Details

Participants ride out in teams of up to six riders. Don’t have a team? Contact our wonderful Secretary at Secretary@WentworthHunt.org and she will help find a team for you.

Riders choose competitive competitive field (faster pace), hilltop (slower pace), or non-competitive divisions (any pace!). All pace courses include a five minute stop in the middle for Stirrup Cup with water (for humans) provided.

Ride Out Times
Ride out times for all our paces is 8:00am to 12:00pm. Request a ride out time when you enter. Final ride out times will be emailed to registered participants and posted here on our website a few days before the pace.

Entry Fees
Adults: $60
Juniors (under 21 years of age): $35

Prizes and Lunch!
You read that right! Ribbons are awarded in the competitive field and hilltop divisions for the top 6 teams based on ride times that are closest to optimal hunt time. Top 3 teams get swag! We hope to be able to score the event and distribute prizes at the conclusion of the pace, but don’t worry if you have to get home to do whatever it is you do when not riding. We’ll get the prizes to you and your team!

We also have series end awards! Ride in the competitive division in all of our paces and be eligible for fabulous series end awards.

And of course, we’ll have food for you throughout the day! Didn’t have time for breakfast? We have you covered. Want a snack or light lunch after your ride? We’ll have something for you. Need to ride and dash, but want a snack for the road? Check that off your list, thanks to Wentworth Hunt. We’ll even have treats for your hard working horses.

Paperwork and Safety
All participants need to complete our 2022 online release form before riding in a pace. Click here to complete the form. You need only do this once a year. After that, we’ll have it on file for the remainder of 2022.

All horses need to bring proof of negative coggins to the pace. Their owners can help them with this, as most horses are notoriously bad with paperwork.

Of course, all riders are required to wear certified helmets and hard-soled shoes with heels. Safefy first, people!

Conservation Hunter Pace

Our second hunter pace in our 2022 series will be our Conservation Hunter Pace at wonderful Fine Nest Farm in Raymond, NH, on Saturday, August 6th.

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 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.

Please Join Us!

Saturday, August 6th

Ride Out Times:

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.
