Tips on getting keroscene off a horses skin

I just got a new rescue horse for my riding program and the horse is about ten years old, American Saddlebred. He is jet black and absoultely beatiful. There's one problem
He had a serious case of rain rot all over his body at the last owner he was at and they treated the issue by pouring five gallons of keroscene on the horses skin. I have no earthly idea how to get it off and I was wandering if anyone had any tips about getting it off. Thank You.

I didn't see anything for getting it off horse skin, but I did find stuff for getting it off human skin.

Maybe it will

Quote:
Handling kerosene means some will get on your hands, and it has a distinctive aroma. Because kerosene is an penetrating oil, regular detergent often does not completely eliminate the aroma. Thick, cheap hair shampoo, or a women's facial cleanser, will dissolve the kerosene quickly and easily. Any lingering kerosene aroma can be removed by using the new "hand sanitizer," which is an emulsified solution of glycerin, alcohol and water. When your hands are still damp and rinsed from using the shampoo, put on some "hand sanitizer," rub your hands together, then rinse and dry, leaving your hands smelling nice and fresh.
