Grooming bag, what do i need?

Hey everyone (: Okay, so I already have alot of stuff in my grooming bag (basically a old bookbag filled with horse stuff). My mare is a Tennessee Walking horse, and they tend to have long manes and tails, so I guess you could say that's what I "specialize" in, or tend to care for the most. Im going to be moving her soon (havent been able too yet, been too busy), and I might be working part time at her new stable, since i've been wanting a job that has something to do with horses. The owner said they could maybe use a groomer. And personally, when I groom my horse, I make sure she's stunning when I get done, lol.

But what im wanting to know, what else do I need? What are some goo products you use? I'll list everything I have, and at the new place, theirs different types of horses. Like a friesian, and a couple hunter/jumping horses, and 2 cobs (that are adorable and look like twins).

So if you don't mind, please list things you have and use, that would be a good thing I might need to groom these different horses. (:

What I have is:

-Coconut oil
-Vetrolin detangler
-Cowboy magic detangler
-Wide toothed comb
-Roll on flyspray
-Show sheen polish
-tri-tech fly repellent
-Jelly scrubber, small curry comb for the face
-Mane & tail conditioner
-Quic black shampoo
-Shapleys hi shine shampoo
-Ultra clear hoof polish
-Mane & tail shampoo
-Absorbine hooflex liquid conditioner
-Rainmaker triple action hoof moisturizer & conditioner.
- And a three tube tail bag which is currently on my mare.

Well, looking at your list:

*Regular curry comb
*Dandy brush
*Soft/finishing brush
*Sweat scraper- I like to use mine after hosing off or bathing horses to scrape away excess liquid
*Hoof picks- I like the ones with brushes- keep several as they tend to get lost/"borrowed"
*Braiding bands
*A spray bottle of water, could be useful for braiding
*Baby powder/corn starch/french chalk, for white markings- only if getting a horse ready to show
*Baby oil around the eyes, and on the ears- also for showing

That's all I can think of at the moment. I'll post again if I can think of anything else. I hope I helped!
