For the second year in a row, Rep. Mike Tobash (R-Schuylkill/Dauphin) finished first in the Mike Waugh Celebrity Draft Horse Team Event on Tuesday, Jan. 10, at the 101st Pennsylvania Farm Show.
Tobash, who was sponsored by Yuengling Brewery, competed against 23 of his legislative colleagues in this event.

“I had a blast participating in this meaningful event,” Tobash said. “It was an exciting time and a great event for a terrific cause, and I was glad to be part of it.”

To win, Tobash had to successfully take control of his assigned team hitches, lead the horses through a pattern of cones, and race back to the line to beat the clock. If a cone was knocked over, or if the hitch went out of its lane, a time penalty was added to the participant’s original time.

Proceeds of the event benefit the Pennsylvania Farm Show Scholarship Foundation. This event was coordinated by Susie and Dave Rohrbach of Bee Tree Trails in Berks County.
