Meet the Team

Michael Halpin

Michael Halpin and Carmel Richardson took over Caloundra Livestock Transport in April 2008. Aiming to provide the best service possible with the resources available to them, their goal for the company is to build and maintain an unrivalled reputation for customer service.

That goal is secondary only to the safety and welfare of all horses while in the care of Caloundra Livestock Transport. Michael and Carmel are focused on expanding the client base and services while still maintaining the high level of customer service and care that existing clients now enjoy.

Grant McConnell- Horse Handler & Driver

Grant has been with the company as a horse handler and driver since itÂ’s takeover in April 2008. He is a lifelong professional driver, and is renowned among regular clients for his expert and careful driving practices. Passionate about working with horses, he is arguably the most patient and polite horse handler on the planet!

Bob Armstrong- Horse Handler & Driver

Bob has had a long association with Caloundra Livestock Transport having worked with the company prior to it changing hands in April 2008. He is an experienced horseman and the holder of a trainers license. He has also had a lifelong involvement in the transport industry.

Dennis Schull- Horse Carer
