I have an old washer with an enameled steel drum, so I put my nylon buckle halters in an old heavy duty pillow case to keep them from chipping the enamel.

I think the newer washing machines have a plastic drum, so it may not be an issue, but something to think about.

Live well, laugh often, love deeply...An' it harm none.

The chestnut one is the arabian, and the bay one is the Quarterhorse
(yes I know the picture was took after a long trail ride and the saddle pad slipped)
I looked like a mugshot so I erased my face:)

Are you riding with a bridle over the halter?

I always just put all mine in a bucket and let soak in water overnight-ish then hose out with a strong spray. Really? Fabric softener in the water? Great idea. I'm going to try that. I use tied rope halters and take them off when not in use, but often times ride with a bridle over the halter. They do get sweaty and dusty but I haven't had a problem with mud.

If its ok with your mom, just chuck them in the washer with a load of towels and then hang them up to dry. The towels will help to scrub them. I would use a stiff brush first to get off clumps of mud if there are any.

yeah why? Every time I ride (exept shows and that) I leave the halter on, I find it is safer if I have to tie them in the trails, and get them across "scary" places, because tieing up a horse with the bridle will damage their mouth, and break the bridle
