Hunter Paces

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!

In 2021, Wentworth Hunt is offering FOUR hunter paces, each at a different but equally amazing hunt territory:

Conservation Hunter Pace: August 7

Our third hunter pace in our series is our Conservation Hunter Pace. This pace will be held at wonderful Fine Nest Farm in Raymond, NH.

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 special treat to ride this territory. Please join us. Registration will open in early to mid-summer. Please check back here, follow us on Facebook or subscribe to our mailing list on the right side of this page (click here). Remember: Hunt members have access to early registration!

Questions? Please contact our secretary at: Secretary@WentworthHunt.org.


Fall Foliage Hunter Pace: October 10

Our final hunter pace in our series is the Fall Foliage Hunter Pace. This pace will be held at Tuckaway Farm, the location of our kennels. This territory is know for its wonderful footing, fun jumps (all gapable), and incredible foliage! The course takes riders through beautiful wooded paths and fields, over babbling brooks and along side beautiful New England farm land. This is a pace that is not to be missed!

Registration will open in late summer/early fall. As always: Check here, on our Facebook page, or by being part of our mailing list. Hunt members have access to early registration!
