Hann's Horse Transport has been moving horses for almost 50 years. Formerly Adelaide based, it now services VIC, NSW and QLD, plus the long-established weekly run to South Australia. The business is owned and managed by Tim and Rebecca Shute who base the operation near Geelong; perfectly situated between their major services routes and within the thriving Victorian horse community.
Tim was always destined to work in horse transport. He remembers being newly licensed, hauling his showjumpers around the country and enjoying the journey more than the actual competition! He has a long-standing track record in commercial horse transport and a lifetime of hands-on equine experience. All his clients will attest to his unflappable attitude and cool, no-stress approach to loading and handling. His clients know Tim as a reliable, professional operator and a great communicator.
Rebecca manages the Hann's office and has more than 12 years of professional experience in office management and customer service. She also has hands-on industry experience as the former customer accounts and administrator for Carmodys Horse Transport. She is of course a horse-woman having ridden and competed her entire life and coaches several successful young riders (including 4yo daughter Taylor!).
Though some may think them young, Tim and Bec are certainly not new to the industry. Tim has been in horse transport for many years and before purchasing Hanns, was already the main driver and 'sometimes' manager of the business. He believes keeping Hanns Horse Transport "in the family" is key to it's ongoing success.
You could say their move into ownership was going to happen whether they liked it or not! Tim and Rebecca are committed to providing industry high service levels and giving you a positive experience with horse transport.
