Welcome to McMurchie Clydesdale Stud - ``Sunny Ridge``

The McMurchie Clydesdale Stud was established in 1977 by Colin and Karen Brown. Initially based upon Aarunga, Annaburne, Box Valley and Stanhope Park bloodlines, today the McMurchie Stud is one of the largest in NSW and Australia.The McMurchie Stud has over these many years been a major exhibitor at both the Sydney and Melbourne Royal Shows, enjoying numerous Championships and class successes.

McMurchie bred horses and their progeny have been highly successful at the Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne , Perth and Sydney Royal Shows.

The importation of the New Zealand Stallions- Sandy Erskine in 1987 and Coldstream McKenna in 1990 was followed by the purchase of three Scottish Stallions- Dillars Lesmahagow in 1993, Phesdo Farewell in 2000 and Millisle Garlieston in 2009, thus highlighting the Stud’s continued commitment to maintaining and improving the Clydesdale horse in Australia for future generations.

The stud’s newest stallion Aarunga Frazer was specifically selected on his outstanding bloodlines – Grand Sire Greendykes Monty IMP and Grand Dam Aarunga Carmel.

Proudly, McMurchie bloodlines have been eagerly sought by fellow breeders and harness exhibitors and have been well represented in the larger commercial teams throughout Australia.

Our continued success is based upon the support and assistance of our broad fraternity of friends and fellow breeders both in Australia and overseas who are similarly committed to the preservation of the Clydesdale Horse.
