Question "Must haves"

So, I and my trainer both think I have a lot more than I really need, but I'm going to the horse expo last week and was wondering:

What are some "must have" items, that are just always great to have?

I have extra bits, polos, one set of boots, extra reins

Definitely going to make my own vet kit, I don't want to be using the BO's when accidents happen!

Anything and everything! What's great to have around?

Like a scrub? Or just plain iodine?
Or are they the same thing? I'm pretty poor in my medical knowledge when it comes to the horses

I have too much of everything but seems like one can never have too many lead ropes or hoof picks. Vet/First Aid kit items, tack repair items (chicago screws, etc), and since you are going to the expo - anything that's a good buy is my motto

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Buckets. Lots of buckets. Also if ya come across one, there's a really cool stapler for stapling wounds, that I used once. Gal up the Road let us use one when one of the horses opened his face up. It was slick, sterile packaged, staples preloaded. It was cool.
