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.

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

Riders choose competitive competitive field (faster pace), hilltop (slower pace), or non-competitive divisions (any pace!).

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.

All pace courses include a five minute stop in the middle for Stirrup Cup with water (for humans) provided.

Prizes and Series Awards

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.

Paperwork and Safety

Adult Release Form and Junior Release Form
All participants need to complete our 2023 online release form before riding in a pace (if you have already done this in 2023, you are all set):

Negative Coggins
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. Safety first, people!

Spring Hunter Pace

Our first pace in our 2023 series was held at Branch Hill Farm, Milton Mills, NH, on Saturday, June 3rd.

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 gappable.

Thank you!
Thank you to our land owners, volunteers, and wonderful riders for making our first hunter pace of the series so much fun!

Conservation Hunter Pace

Our second hunter pace in our 2023 series is our Conservation Hunter Pace at wonderful Fine Nest Farm in Raymond, NH, on Saturday, August 12th.

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.

Thank you to our land owners, volunteers, and lovely riders for making this hunter pace so wonderful!

Tuckaway Farm and Powder Major’s Farm together create an incredibly beautiful territory offering a course alongside babbling brooks and working farms, through wooded trails, and across large open riding fields.
