I keep a curry, hoof pick, and mane brush. The mane brush I use is actually a human hair brush but it works well on my horse's hair. I also have four brushes varying in stiffness from coarse to a soft finishing brush. I have a small face brush, a bag of rubber bands, Thrush Buster, a bot knife, and a pair of scissors.

There is a community bin my family's barn that contains hoof moisture, fly spray of various brands, healthy hair care, detangler, dish soap, horse shampoo and a collection of sponges, scrapers, and mits for bathing.

We keep a first aid drawer in the feed room, with a human first aid kit, as well as all the supplies to clean and dress a horse wound, some Bute and Banamine, Swat and SCR ointment. We have a stethoscope and digital thermometer. We also have duct tape, diapers and icthamol for the treatment of a hoof abscess.

unscented face wipes for myself and my horse. Comes in handy if she has a snotty nose or a stubborn smudge on one of her white spots. remember to read the packaging carefully and get unscented usually something along the lines of baby face wipes is alright but still check the package for content and if your really unsure ask the vet or search online for specific chemicals that could be harmful.
And I can never forget the all important treats in the bag. :)
I think that's it......... im pretty sure.

Mine's pretty limited.

Hoof pick
Thrush treatment
Sweat scraper
Curry comb
Body brush
Face brush
Wrap (for potential injuries)

I'm sure it lacks a lot of stuff but I'm equally sure whatever it is lacking is somewhere in my barn/house.

I keep two grooming boxes..one with basic brushes....I think there's currently 3 curries, two hard brushes, two soft brushes, a face brush, 5 or 6 mane combs...they collect....and 2 hoof picks...one with brush and one without. The other box holds hoof moisturizer, fly sprays, corona ointment, a specialized rain rot mix, thrush buster and leave-in conditioner for tails.

Mine has:

Hard brush
Round soft brush
Mane brush
Metal curry
Rubber curry
Hoof pick
Tick tweezers

I keep all the sponges and bathing stuff in another case, because I don't bathe every time and I don't feel the need to carry all around all time (and the sponges need to dry elsewhere anyway)

For Bathing:

Sponges (face, genitals, anal area, more just in case)
Rubber cleaning brush-glove
Hair conditioner
Hard soap (for cleaning small cuts)
Sweat scraper
