We’ve seen owners dressing up their cats and dogs in the most stunning dresses , but have you ever seen a horse in a tailored suit? “A horse in a suit” may sound silly because of the size and body type of the horse. How a three-piece suit would fit a horse? but don’t worry, now it’s a reality.
Veteran racehorse Morestead along with Champion jockey Sir Tony McCoy wore a three-piece tweed suit complete with shirt, tie, and flat cap, designed by former Alexander McQueen apprentice and celebrity stylist Emma Sandham-King.
It’s the world’s first three-piece Harris Tweed suit for a horse.
Fashion designer Emma Sandham-King created the garment to celebrate horse racing’s 2016 Cheltenham Festival.
Ms. Sandham-King said:
“Creating the world’s first tweed suit for a horse has been one of the biggest challenges that I have faced in my career as a designer.
“Some models can be real divas, but veteran racing horse Morestead was calm and a pleasure to work with.”
She added: “Tweed is undergoing a massive revival and this year’s Cheltenham Festival will see the most tweed worn since the 1960s.”
It required over 18m (59ft) of tweed – about 10 times more than an equivalent human garment.
