I would ditch it and get a new halter or you can hang it somewhere special..
I don't really like to use leather halters for everyday use (my opinion) unless to look snazzy going to a show with and that is the only time my horse has one on.

I really like rope halters!

IMO, leather halters are only good for showing or turnout (If they're cheap.) I bought one for my gelding and left it on him in the stall overnight. He managed to get it caught on the door latch and he broke the throat latch off of it! I would keep the halter and hang it up for decoration or something and replace it.
