Rid Your Horse Of Rain Rot With Apple Cider Vinegar

by Charity

French translation

Rain rot (a type of fungus) occurs as raised hair and scurf causing scab like areas on your horse, usually on his/her back and usually caused by warm weather and rain especially if living in a dusty area or your horse rolls a lot making him/her more likely to have dirt on his/her back.

Using undiluted apple cider vinegar as a spray after washing and rinsing your horse will help restore natural ph levels while the citric acid (acetic acid) in the vinegar will heal the rain rot leaving a nice shiny coat within days.

The vinegar spray can be used as needed after the initial bath for maintenance and also on minor wounds.
