My name is Tish Harris and my company is now named Elegant
Show Styles. Many of you may know me under my previous commercial
name of Equi-tard. The name change was chosen to reflect the
new direction I am going. I now specialize in one of a kind
custom fitted outfits for the show ring. In doing so, I've
returned to my true passion and roots as a designer and seamstress.
This change has been a gradual progression over the
As a vendor, I've seen firsthand the increased demand
for beautiful, unique show clothing.
My passion for design goes back over
30+ years which I have been a professional seamstress. I've held
the position of the Head Seamstress/Wardrobe Mistress for a
Historical Theatre (no more button fly pants for me thank you!).
I've designed and produced Ballroom Dancing Gowns, Professional
Belly Dance costumes and reproduction Renaissance costumes, etc...
This is in addition to the many costumes created for the horses
using my Equi-tards, that have turned the average equine into
many a mythical creature.
I still have lycra hoods and full body Equi-Tard coverings for horses, but in very limited quantities.
As a life time horse owner with 28 years of showing
experience, I know what goes into making an impression in the
show ring. Now as a vendor, I am sharing my years of experience
to create a wonderful, unique fashion statement, just for you.
