Membership and Capping

Wentworth Hunt has many different membership types (see below). We are sure we have something for everyone!

Guests are invited to join us for up to three times during our fall seasons (see below). Guests pay a capping fee, which may be applied to membership dues. Guests may join us for Spring Roading without limit (Spring Roading capping fees do not apply to membership dues).

Our membership form, release form, and payment for membership dues and capping fees are all online. You may find links to these on the right side of this page, or click here.

Please contact our secretary at Secretary@WentworthHunt.org if you have any questions about joining us as a guest or becoming a member.
