I have that halter!!!! Well my horse has that halter, except his is blue & says "I love my owner". He bought it off ebay & gets me to throw it in the washing machine (yes, it's a front loader) every once in awhile, and he says to tell you, it still looks good and feels good on him.

I used a 5 gal bucket and a $5 drain plunger and dish soap. I can get more agitation going than the washing machine. ...(quote from Sadlebag)

I have a slight variation on this -- I use a toilet plunger (new of course and the heavy rubber upside down bowl style) instead of drain plunger. As Saddlebag said you get great agitation going with it plus it does not take that much effort.

Toss it and a get a leather one. Easier to clean, and safer for your pony.

I simply wash mine in water and i scrub it really good with dog shampoo and once it`s all dry it looks brand new, i was even asked the other day by a friend of mine if i had bought a new halter because it looked so clean and new again :)
