we have a washing machine in the tack room, we just throw several in at a time. add a little softner or they can get stiff when they dry and if you want to bring back a bright color, you can dye them with fabric dye. hope it helps

I love the rope halters! but I never leave it on in the pasture they could get hung up then hurt themseleves trying to get undone. rope halters wash very well too!

If it is a leather halter, try cleaning it with Horsemans One Step or Leather New. Both are quick cleanups for leather. If it is a nylon halter, you could rinse it off with water. If the buckle and other metal parts are rusty, I would throw it away and buy a new one. Your local feed store or tack shop should have some good choices that aren't expensive. Big D and Weaver both make inexpensive nylon halters that will last a long time.

This isn't the best solution for everyone, but we have a separate washer and dryer for our horse stuff, we wash halters, leadlines, all of it in the washer, if it's really grimy before putting it in the washer dunk it in a bucked or warm water and mr.clean (or something similar). Depending on what we wash with it, sometimes we put them in the dryer as well, (especially with horse blankets to keep them fluffed up).

As for the rust, see what comes clean after the washer... if it's too rusty you may just have to replace it.
...oh and if it's leather don't put it in the washer... just use loads and loads of saddle soap, it'll come clean.

It might be easier to just buy a new halter~ you could try to clean it but keep in mind whatever you use, may transfer on to your horses skin- good luck!
