Halters??????????

I have had my horse for 6 months , came with a halter but it didnt look all that great so 2 months ago I bought a new one. Now it looks as if this halter is looking old lol. I guess I will clean it and see if it brings that new look back. I did clean the other one and it still had a faded color afterwards.

Do any of you guys who keep the halters on and your horses are out in the weather notice the color on the halters fade in not too long of a time?

I don't turn out my horses with halters, they have a track record for losing/breaking all of their knew things :/ But I have friends and family who do turn out with halters. I've seen bright green halters fade to a pine green, leather that has weathered and cracked, black that doesn't look black anymore. The sun and rain does that to them, so it doesn't take long. I hoard my halters so they stay nice and clean :)

There really isn't much you can do about that. If you can, turn out your horses without halters. I leave my horses halter on when she is turned out just because its easier to catch her.

I really just accept that face that she is going to get them dirty and then when she needs a new one for a show I'll just buy her a new one! They are only 20 or more so its not a huge cost.

Here is the color I have on Ceilidh now, she got it for Christmas. I can't wait to see what it will look like after a winter out in the pasture

Yeah mine would be much easier to catch with the halter on. And also probably wont like having to put the halter on and off to attach the lead rope

Those are issues better addressed with training than by leaving halters on 24/7.

Yes, if your horse is out 24/7 you should really leave the halter off. I leave mine on because she isn't out during the night or early mornings. She has her halter off more then she does on.

NEVER leave a horse's halter on when they are in their stall. I have heard too many horror stories about accidents with leaving them on over night.

It's not safe to turn your horse out in a halter unless it is the safety/breakaway type. I personally know of two horses who broke their necks in accidents after their halters were left on and they got hung up on a fence post and panicked.

I have 4 horses and they are on pasture 24/7..

I never leave my halter on any of my horses except for one of them named Stumpy. He is SUCH a PAIN to catch that I HAVE to leave his halter on or I would NEVER be able to git near him!

Whenever my halter gets dirty I just pop it in the dishwasher! It works SO well!

I always pick the REALLY dark halters that way when they fade you don't notice it too much. =)

I never leave halters on and it is a complete no no on the property.

Halters can be left on in stalls while we're present for short times. Often we will put them in stalls loose with halters whilst tacking up or feeding or waiting for a lesson.

All dyed fabrics will fade after a while be it halter saddle cloth rug or jods
