Leather halter staining horse

I just got a new leather halter for my horse. Is there anything I can do to keep it from staining his hair? He's mostly white so every new halter I've used (leather, nylon, or rope) has stained him and takes forever to get the coloring off!

Tips or suggestions?

Have you cleaned/oiled his halters at all?
Seems like a thorough cleaning and oiling would get the excess leather dye out.

Leather I can see staining, its from the cheap dye they use. I would seriously consider buying a nylon halter from someplace other than where you are getting the ones that bleed. I have NEVER seen a nylon halter that color has bled. And we are talking a lot of decades here of using halters. Buy the brand name "Hamilton" nylon halter if you can, I can guarantee you it won't bleed onto your horse.

I would definitely give your leather halter a thorough cleaning.

Your halter STAINS him?! That's so weird.. I bought a $20 leather special from Dover and it hasn't stained at all.. I've never heard of leather staining a horse. A saddle pad sure.. weird!!!

Is this normal?

I have a navy blue weaver halter(break-a-way) on my leopard appy, his face has a lot of white and it hasn't stained him at all. I got it from horse.com for about 25 or so. I highly suggest weaver. I did have a buckle break on my break-a-way halter so I emailed their customer service, they asked for a pic of the broken part then they sent me a new halter right out, I didn't even have to send the old one back so now I have an extra breakaway strap.

If the halter is lined with latigo leather then it will stain the hair. To make leather "latigo" it's a special process to make it more resistant to rain, sweat, etc. That is why it often is used as a liner when up against the horse. If it is latigo then don't use oil or conditioners but instead clean it with glycerine soap or even Murphy's on a damp sponge.Latigo leather is reddish in color.
