I kind of did the opposite thing.
My horse has never been in a halter or bridle that fit him. It was a metaphor in my eyes of how he just didn't fit the mold of a regular horse. He had a rough past and he was very often misunderstood. So when I got his halter, I left it at the old barn so it can collect dust and be forgotten. It was a horse sized bronc halter, etched with his name. Sure it was pretty but it wasn't him. Just like his past wasn't him.. he's a completely different horse now :)
It all depends. I personally wouldn't keep it but I suppose you could always clean it up and cover it with ribbon so it looks nice or get the nose band replaced with leather and make one of those partially leather, partially nylon ones.

I feel like since he's my first horse, I should keep it, but I'd like to do something creative with it and not just have a random halter lying around.
Does anyone have any creative ideas on what to do with it? Or should I just throw it away?
