I have a bunch of random stuff from different times....

Soft Brush
Hard Brush
Hoof Pick
Mane puller (the metal comb with a hook on the end)
Mane Brush
(and in the mail..)
Sweat scraper (maybe if I get enough stuff for spring it will come faster!)
Shampoo and Detangling chemicals (although those are going in a bucket)
And of course the treats, always important to keep a few around in case I forget to get some out of my tack box. It really helps him tolerate the earplugs and stuff like that.

I didn't know people actually bought grooming kits that were already put together. I just got a new brush every time I went to a store that had horse grooming supplies.

I have one of those bathing brushes that can be hooked up to a hose, which works wonders compared to a curry comb. I have probably about five hoof picks, for all two of my horses. XD I get many supplies as gifts. I have sissors, dematting combs and soft brushes to brush shedding hair away aswell as dirt. Nothing to fancy, really. Just whatever I find that's helpful. I don't show horses, so I don't dress them up to much. (But I do have some horse-safe paint that I use to color my horses all indian-horse like. X3) I'm sure I have a crapload of other brushes, I just can't remember them. Plus I have like five of the same of alot of brushes just as gifts from people.

Well I was always aware of them but didnt actually buy one till last year it was an oster one and to be honest out of 5 brushes and a hoof pick I only ever use 2 of the brushes as I don't like the rest and don't like the hoof pick. I think the method of buyin what you need as you need / see it is always better ... worked out cheaper for me

I was given a pre-made grooming kit when I first got my horse. Had a sponge, curry comb, plastic brush and a hoof pick in it. I use it as my bathing kit now lol.
My current kit has:

A slick n' Easy
A mane and tail brush
A big medium hardness brush
A soft body brush
A hard body brush
A hoof pick with a brush on the opposite side
A lamb mitt
A curry comb

If you show, the lamb mitts are excellent, they really lift the dirt and make them shiny looking. I love my long bristled big medium brush, prefect for getting off the initiate muck and dirt. A slick n' easy I also always welcome in my kit, perfect for lifting dirt, removing bot eggs and taking off the winter coat.
