Look, it’s a horse wearing a hat. As far as we know this is the first time a horse got to wear a hat, apart from horse armour in medieval times but that’s was a more casual affair and not suitable for Ascot.
We can’t stop looking at the picture of the horse in the hat. It doesn’t seem bothered by the hat, and we think it looks really stylish. Here are some facts about the hat.
- Stephen Jones, the official milliner for Royal Ascot and hatmaker to the stars, has created the world’s first hat for a horse to celebrate 300 years of Royal Ascot and Ladies’ Day.
- The hat is based on the famous Royal Ascot headpiece worn by Audrey Hepburn in the film ‘My Fair Lady’.
- In total, the hat took over 30 hours to make and is valued at more than £8,000.
- The hat was commissioned by Fox’s Biscuits to be worn by its own racehorse, Ambers.
We want to know how was the hat valued if it was the first hat ever and why do Fox’s Biscuits have a racehorse?
