stiff bristled brush - for demudding
medium bristled brush - for standard grooming
soft bristled brush - for flicking off deep dust that brushes can't seem to get to
face brush - for dusting faces and ears
face cloth - for cleaning noses and eye boogies
mane and tail brush
shaving razor - they have those little razor blades in the plastic combs to shave off nose hairs without hooking up the trimmers
hoof picks (2 because they always seem to disappear lol)
rubber curry comb - for decrusting sweat and scrubbing during bathes
dishwash soap - for stripping coats and cleaning brushes
shampoo/conditioner - for mane, coat, and tail
olive/coconut oil - additive after conditioners for detangling
fly spray - homemade vinegar mix
leg wraps
rubber bands - because I'm a persistent tail braider, especially for lessons
tweezers - for deticking or other uses
carrrabiners - because someone is always breaking cross ties and buckets loose

I know there is other stuff I am missing, just stuff you collect over time for uses because horses are accident prone.

I really like the practice of using tool boxes, because they do lock, they're lightweight, and they don't cost a fortune for decent ones!

Think of it not as a failure but as a success in how not to do it.

Don't look in a horses mouth for a gift.

Every day riding:

*Dandy brush (I have two, one with longer bristles and one with shorter ones).
*Curry comb (I have a black, oval plastic one)
*Two hoof picks, one without a brush and one with
*Sweat scraper


*Two child scissors (the ones kids use in school)
*Cowboy Magic Bodyshine
*Mane comb
*Tail brush
*Face brush
*Soft brush
*Baby Oil
*Baby powder
*Sponge/s (more meant for cleaning tack than grooming)
*Rag/towel thing
*Bands for braiding

Depending on the time of year I'll have flyspray.

There's more but I forget what. Keep in mind that some of the showing stuff I mention only comes with me to shows (baby oil for example) while some of it stays with me all year (face brush, etc).

Wellp, just threw together a new grooming tote so here goes nothing.
-stiff brush
-soft brush
-mane brush
-pulling comb
-shedding flower (<< LOVE those things.)
-rubber curry
-metal curry
-rubber mitt/brush/bathing thing.
-hair brush (for myself. lol.)
-hoof picks (several)
-hoof brush
-cordless clippers
-rubber bands (both horsey and human :P)
-thinning comb thing
And then there's some random stuff...
-paintbrush (for hoof polish)
-dish towels
-empty spray bottle
-a couple treats
-a granola bar

And all this fits in a medium tote!

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it's the voice at the end of the day that says "I'll try again tomorrow"...
