How to clean a fleece girth?

Title says all really. Geof is using a fleece girth and it is getting grimy, and I need to have it clean for a show this weekend, so any ideas? Thanks for the help in advance!

Mines not fleece, its string mohair. I imagine they clean the same though. I brush mine with a stiff brush to get as much hair as I can off, then hand wash it in Woolite. Rinse it really well then lay it out to dry.

Put whitening shampoo in it (if its white, if not just use liquid soap) then scrub it with a brush and rinse with hose, leave to dry!
That's what my friend does (i have a leather girth ;) hope it helps, and good luck at the show!

Yeah.. never cleaned a girth but I have cleaned the fleece on a hackamore bridle before and I just put some shampoo on it and scrubbed it with a curry comb.. . Rinse and repeat until clean.

^You know, I might just try that first, cause I have to wash my polos and saddle pads too. I just have to do it while my mom's gone..... She hates when I wash my sweaty grimy horse stuff in the washer! :P

I would just throw it in the washer as well. But I would also brush it really good with a curry before, just to get a lot of the stubborn hair and grim out.

I would take it to a laundromat personally. I don't like picking horse hair out of my clothes for weeks afterwards :P
