Leather halters aren't easier to clean... you can throw a nylon one in the washing machine. o_O
Personally, I don't think you can ever have too many halters, even if you only have one horse. Ricci has like, six, and Gracie has four? Haha. Ricci has a purple one, a blue one, two yellow nylon ones, a yellow rope halter, and a black with white padding leather one that I just got. Gracie has a hot pink one, a green one, a black leather one, and a gray rope halter.
I like the leather halters, I prefer black, because Ricci just doesn't look good in my friend's brown one, but I also like COLOR. As far as colors go, you can get paint card sample chip things at the local hardware store and figure out what will look best.
Oh, oh, oh! I also like to make sure the chin is adjustable, and the throat latch has a clip. I prefer to unclip the throat latch and take the halter off over my horse's heads. In the event of a barn fire, you will already be pretty worked up, and it would be very easy to stumble with the buckles to get the halter on, wasting precious time. If you leave the throat latch open, it goes over their head, and you don't even have to buckle the throat latch back up, it'll stay on. Just some food for thought. =]
