In 2001 Lynn commenced the Clevedon Animal Farm which is set on 25 acres in the beautiful Clevedon Valley, just south of Auckland.
Her love of the animals and their love for her is obvious when you arrive at the Clevedon Animal Farm - a place where you can enjoy safe and kind animals.
In latter years Lynn has trained her horses in the Natural Horsemanship style and has successfully completed the criteria for the Horseman's Award in the Parelli programme. She is still studying and is involved in the new Clevedon Natural Horsemanship group.
A Little History
In the small country town of Shannon - just south of Palmerston North - Lynn Collecutt ran a bed & breakfast place called Thaddeus's Place with the help of her husband Colin.
It was here that Lynn's love of animals great and small first had the idea of displaying the talents of her beloved furry friends. So the original animal show started - starring Thaddeus the magnificent St. Bernard dog - and a few of his good friends.
Lynn has trained animals all her life and succeeded in winning the National Obedience Trials with two different dogs. She has competed in dressage and western riding shows and studied training animals extensively.
