    Rain rot is a pretty typical and very contagious fungus. It's also very treatable and nothing to be overly concerned about. Shampooing with Betadine is the easy, less messy, and economical way to treat it. It always heals, the hair grows back, and it's not fatal.

    Well I have been using the curry comb on him everyday and mtg, hopefully it will go away soon, I want to ride him.I don't think its a good ideal right now , though

    You can ride him as long as the pad or cinch doesn't irritate him. Be sure not to use those brushes or any other gear on another horse until his fungus is gone and you clean anything that you've used on him.

    Yeah I keep all his grooming stuff separated from the others and also soak in diluted bleach water.He doesnt ride with a saddle, just bareback or a bareback pad and if I use the pad it may be a pain to clean cause it is suede. So maybe I'll just ride bareback.
