Don't forget a bucket too in case you need to bathe or touch up white areas. This isn't exactly a grooming tool, but kind of runs along the same idea---you may consider bringing a tail bag to keep your horse's tail clean, a "slinky" to keep your horse from rubbing braids out or to help keep the mane laying flat (really I don't worry about the slinky unless I'm braiding and even then if it's really hot, I just take my chances sometimes) and some folks will also bring coolers or anti-sweat sheets to have the horse wear until he goes in the ring, as it keeps the horse from getting manure stains in his stall. This is especially helpful if you have grey horses.
