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.

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
