For either soaking or just dampening hay, the easiest way I've found for one horse is to put the hay in a hay bag, dampen the hay bag in a muck bucket full of water and then---
-- to just dampen the hay to get rid of dust, slosh it up and down a few time, then hang the hay bag to drain.
-- If the hay needs to be soaked, I put it in the muck bucket for as long as needed, depending on whether the water is hot or cold, to leech out the sugars, then hang to the hay bag to drain.
