LEETON teenager Daniel Guilford is almost $50,000 richer after a massive weekend at The Big Show in Tamworth.
As part of a strong Riverina contingent at the event, the 14-year claimed honours in the sevens team roping competition.
Around 600 cowboys and cowgirls chased a share of the $780,000 prize pool, and Guilford could have make made the trip back south as the proud owner of not one but two new cars.
As part of his prizes Guilford became the proud owner of two new Mitsubishis, but at the tender age of 14 Guilford didn't have much need for his prize.
Instead he took them back to the dealer and cashed them in.
That's a lot of money for any 14-year-old and Guilford hasn't decided just what his nest egg will go towards.
"I'm not sure really sure what to do yet," Guilford said.
"I couldn't really use the car as I still have two years until I get my licence."
Purchasing a horse or saving the money away to by some land are just two options Guilford is considering
Inspired by his father Craig, Guilford has been roping alongside his brothers Billy and Jackson for the last six years.
The Big Show was the biggest event he's competed in and he described his lucky to come away with such a big pay day.
Guilford has done a lot of work with Alan Wood and Darryl Flanagan in the lead up to the event as well as during the competition.
Wood, who hails from Tabbita, also went home from the event with a new car.
Tabbita's Heath Litchfield took out the open event, with his prizes including a new ute.
