Watching his older sister successfully compete in the cattle ring spurred Clayton Porter to take it on.
The Scone Grammar student took out the prestigious grand champion parader at Wingham Beef Week today.
"My sisters (Montana and Caitlin) got me into it, they have always been showing," Clayton, 16 said.
"I mucked around in the yards helping them break it in and then started leading it when I was eight-years-old and enjoying it."
But today's win would have to be one of his biggest achievements, Clayton said.
"Today's competition was tough, my steer (Trigger) was being a rat and didn't want to stand still," he said.
"It's great to see young kids have a go.
"It wasn't that long ago when I was their age winning everything they are winning today."
He has a swag of ribbons under his belt including placed fourth in age group at Sydney Royal this year.
