Curry comb or shedding comb. They both work well. Some people like those grooming bricks but they tend to get overwhelmed during shedding season.

The best thing to use is this: http://eponaproducts.com/products/grooming_tools/1011
Their called shed flowers and it doesn't seem like it would work because its basically a plasticy type of material (im not sure its plastic but i think it is). As soon as my mare starts to shed I use this on her. I used it basically like a curry comb (but i still curry first). Go around in circles and it will get alot of the hair off. I can no longer go a spring without it :D

I adore my furminator! This thing is absolutely amazing and you can get them on ebay for cheap.

I use a round metal curry in the direction of the hair growth (don't "curry" with it!). Make sure you are grooming near a sturdy non-living object, so you can hit the curry on it to quickly remove the hair that accumulates on the brush. :)

A nice warm bath will relax the follicles as well as remove any dirt and allow the dead shaft to fall out easier. If anything get a few steamy towels and lay them over her and let them sit for a few minute, then curry really well, repeat.

A bath using a power washer works great.
Use it with respect and your horse will love it.
