EARLIER THIS YEAR, a massive internet debate broke out regarding exactly how a dog would wear a pair of trousers if they were so inclined.

While the answer was obvious, Emma Sandham-King — a former apprentice of Alexander McQueen — may have taken the discussion to heart and wondered exactly what a horse would look like in an suit.

The answer was pretty impressive as the veteran racehorse Morestead shows wearing his Harris Tweed suit, specially commissioned by bookmaker William Hill to celebrate the opening of the festival.
