I do have a few rope halters and some nylon ones, but they are kind of dirty. The orange clay here doesn't come out of anything, and last time I washed them they took forever to dry and weren't noticeably cleaner. I would like something to look nicer for when people come over and and end up seeing the horses, the farrier/vet comes over, or we take them places. Just want to class it up haha.
All of our horses have breakaway halters, with the leather crown piece, but again the orange mud stains them. I am a neat freak about my leather tack and clean it frequently, but the nylon doesn't clean well.
I guess this is more of a "what do I want for my horses?" thread haha, they probably couldn't care less with whatever I get them unless it involves food. I have never had leather halters though, so I have no clue which is best. So far it seems like leather is a winner, and I will get nameplates afterwards.
