A properly conditioned horse can work all day, several days per week. If your horse is walking away when he sees you with a halter, he's come to associate the halter and work.

What I do with a horse that acts that way, is to always have the halter with me. Sometimes I'll just walk up to him, give him a treat, then walk away. Other times, I'll halter him, then take it off. Still other times I'll hand walk him and let him graze in the field. The point is to not let him associate the halter with work - that the halter is actually a part of me and not a means to catch and saddle him.

Good luck with him.
