You know what helped me with our new guys? Ivory dish soap and Iodine. Three of our six new guys have rain-rot, and this is the only thing that really seems to be helping our little filly, and it's easy on her skin. You just mix the two together, two parts soap to one part iodine, put on a glove (that iodine stains like you wouldn't believe ._.) give your horse a good soaking, and lather away. Leave it on for 5-10 minutes, and rinse it off. I'm doing this about once every 5-6 days and it's already starting to make an improvement, although I think it generally takes 2-3 months to clear completely...
I'd just worry about it staining Rodeo O_o might want to try some under this belly or something first, if you're going to be scrubbing any white areas. All of the OTTBs are bay, brown, or black, so we didn't have to worry about it.
And I'm sure you already know this, but just a friendly reminder to keep everything STERILE! Don't want to get rid of it mostly, then accidently give the bacteria back to him on a brush or a rag!
