Looking for a "Fade Proof" Rope Halter

...Well no halter is absolutely fade proof...but fade "resistant". Where I live the sun is brutal and because my horse is pulled out of his pasture to be fed it is constantly out in the weather (it's hung in the shade (under a roof) but sun still manages to get to it). So I'm wondering what y'alls recommendations as far as a fade resistant rope halter is. Also it has to come in BLUE.

Am in England so don't get a load of sun here, but havr had a Parelli one for 2 years that's been fine in all weathers :) Or if you're not a fan of them (fair do's) then Blue Moon Equine has some in a nice blue colour - i 've had one for 3/4 years now and it's not faded at all :) Hope this helps :)

I have a rope halter from Sunset Halters that I adore. We don't get a ton of sun here but Lacey was wearing this halter pretty much 14 hours a day, in the sun, last summer and it's still as bright as it was when I first bought it.

Just as a shameless plug for these people, they are fantastic to work with. They shipped me a halter in the wrong color by accident when they sent me this halter and when I emailed to straighten things out, they gave me free return shipping AND they also gave me a different style of halter than I had first ordered (the one I ordered, that came wrong, was stiffer rope than I expected) that was worth $5 more than the one I had ordered, at no cost to me. Then, they shipped all that back to me for free again. So really, they made no money in that transaction at all. They were completely friendly and extremely helpful through out my entire, probably frustrating for them, transaction.

If you email them, they can probably advise you about wether or not their halters are going to be as fade resistant as you need and if they aren't, they'll probably point you in the direction of a halter that will fit your needs.

Talking I know its a tad late but..

I thought I'd post two responses to your original request for info about Mustang rope halters I happened across recently whilst researching the same subject:

Nice Rope Halters

I have 2 of these halters (One lime one pink) and love them! They fit perfect. I like rope halters because my horses seem to lead better in them than regular halters. Plus these come with a leadrope for a great price! I will definitely be buying more. I usually keep all my tack, including halters, in the tackroom out of the sun/weather but have forgotten about them many times so they have faded a little but not bad. The color still looks good. :) 5 stars.....

Fade quick, but sturdy

I have 2 of these rope halters, and they have been put on a few horses with different sized heads, and fit well. My only complaint is how quickly they fade. We have the lime green, and hot pink, and both of them are very faded now. Other than that, you can't beat the price, because I have looked!
