I throw them in the washing machine on gentle cycle and go light on the soap. If you think your horse(s) might be sensitive to detergent, you could rinse twice.

Wash in the washer, no agitator machine {front load} is best. Use miminal soap...
If you have to use a agitator style machine, gentle cycle so as not to wring the thing to death.

Hang to dry in the sunshine....no dryer.

I'm not allowed to wash horse stuff in our washer, so I would probably scrub it with a curry comb or other stiff type brush in a warm bucket of mildly soapy water, then rinse very very thoroughly and hang to dry. You might want to dry the metal parts of the girth if it's a rust-prone metal.
