wet belt with hot water and added to dye for 30 minuted stirring about ever 5 minutes

rinsed belt with cold water until water coming off was pink

ran through warm wash cycle w/ 1/2 cap of liquid detergent

BTW there was one more of these at the tack shop I went to, size 40

Looks good to me. The color is almost personal preference. I think anything from brown to burgundy to even red can work. I have also seen reference pics that seam to show all those colors.
