Pretty much the order I use them - some things like the detangler spray I don't use every time I ride.
- Curry comb
- Dandy brush
- Soft brush
- Hoof pick
- mane and tail detangler
- comb
- hard bristle brush
- scissors
- fly spray

This is a very basic kit. My dad takes my stuff sometimes to use on calves. So half my stuff is lost... Ugh. This won't be in order though...
1 metal curry comb
1 dandy brush
1 "little back pocket brush"
1 finishing brush
3 different sizes of mane bands for braiding to make the mane kinked for shows
1 hoofpick with brush
1 rubber scrubber with sparkles

I can't think of anything else...... :/

What would be really fun would be finding out what's in all our first aid kits! There's lots of stuff in there.

It would be easier to tell you what I dont have in my grooming kit.

Which as far as I can think is hoof picks.

Now missing from my tack room however is a fitted saddle pad that fits my english saddle, a bit that actually works on my horse, an english girth that actually fits the pony, a hunt coat that isn't 6 in. to short in the sleeves, etc.

All I have is:
rubber curry
medium brush
finishing brush
hoof pick
hair bush
detangler spray

I have tried to have more brushes LOL but they just never seem to stay on hand. I end up using the same few brushes all the time. Plus with the lovely curiosity that miss Zanna has, if I set it down where she can get to it, it disappears!

I have several kits that I bring to different barns that I ride at (just to avoid spreading nasty skin fungus). But each kit must have this minimum:

-coarse curry (love the unigroom curries!)
-shedding blade
-really stiff body brush
-long "flicker" brush
-synthetic bristled dandy
-soft (preferably goathair) dandy
-oster hoof pick (or a knock off version)
-hoof brush/scrub brush
