Hepburn Lagoon Trail Rides

Kieran & Sue Prendergast

Kieran and his family lovingly maintain Quirindi Stables. This family owned property has been in the one family for five generations and its history is reflected in the original rustic buildings.


Kieran has had a love of horses and riding since he was a young boy. He was a member of the Kingston Pony Club for many years where he learnt correct horsemanship, dressage and riding skills. He worked for three years as a head jackaroo where he spent whole days mustering and working stock. This experience has given Kieran a sound understanding of how horses behave, how to treat a horse and what to be careful of. He hunted with the Oakland's Hunt Club for several years where he honed his skills of jumping and learned more about how horses behave in a group.


Kieran and his wife Sue live on the farm with their four children. The children are very involved in the family business and are a great support on the trail rides.


Sue will look after you when you get back from the ride. You will be invited in to sit and rest your weary legs in front of the fire in the Barn, or under the leafy verandah on warm days. The Barn is one of the original buildings on the property and is a rustic space that has been made comfortable with the open fire and comfy chairs, making it a perfect place to relax after a ride. Sue cooks up a tasty treat for you – pizzas using her homemade relish. With some tasty tucker in your tummy, the stories of the ride flow and it tops the day off beautifully!


Friends and family members who do not feel like riding are welcome to relax in the Barn while waiting for the riders to return. Bring a book to read or talk to Sue about some great places to visit nearby such as the Captain's Creek Winery, The Maze House, Newlyn Antiques and the Swiss Mountain Hotel.


Daylesford and Creswick with all they have to offer, are only ten minutes away.
