A suit fit for even the finest horses.
 
Donning the world’ first Harris Tweed suit designed for a race horse, veteran race horse Morestead is turning heads ahead of this year’s Cheltenham Festival in England.
 
And he looks quite dapper.
 
 A three-piece suit, along with a flat cap and tie -- commissioned by bookmaker William Hill and designed by one-time Alexander McQueen apprentice Emma Sandham -- completed Morestead’s look as he modeled alongside champion jockey AP McCoy.
 
"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," Sandham-King told the Daily Mail. "Some models can be real divas, but veteran racing horse Morestead was calm and a pleasure to work with."
 
The Cheltenham Festival kicks off March 15 in the western English county of Gloucestershire.
