Here's a list at what's at the barn where I am (if I didn't know the official word for it, I used a word that I felt described it well enough):

1. Brooms
2. Poo forks
3. Poo shovel
4. Rake
5. Wheelbarrows
6. Buckets
7. Heavy board and chain for hooking to back of truck to drag arena
8. Automatic waterer thingies
9. Food bins that hook to inside of stable boxes (or are formed right into it)
10. Hay nets (slow feeders)
11. Grooming tool boxes for each horse
12. Bread bin (we feed stale baguette bread to the horses)
13. Hooks for hanging bridles and bars for hanging saddles/pads
14. Lockers for putting things you don't want stolen
15. Hay bale grabber fork
16. Scissors
17. Jackknife
18. Leg protectors for horses who jump
19. Bells for horse feet
20. Feed measuring scoop
21. Salt lick holders
22. Salt blocks
23. Horse ball (not sur if they have these in the US, but they're big in France. Small soccer ball with leather straps all over it for throwing around between riders on horseback - super fun)
24. Poles for doing exercises (like cavaletti) and the blocks that go with them
25. Cones for doing exercises
26. Hose for wash rack area
27. Cross tie ropes with clips on ends
28. Non-slip mats in washrack area
29. Electric tape for paddocks and maybe your arena too.
30. Poles to attach electric tape to
31. Clips to attach tape to poles
32. Handles for tape at gate openings
33. Clips to secure handles at gate openings
34. Electrical battery and/or connection for electric fences

In my tack box I have:

1. curry combs (rubber, plastic, and metal)
2. brushes in various lengths and stiffnesses
3. hoof pick
4. comb for trimming mane straight
5. scissors
6. mane thinner
7. baby oil for keeping mane and tail soft and easy to brush out
8. hair brush for mane and tail
9. small sponge for eyes and ears
10. Neem oil for inside of ears (heals boo-boos and keeps the bugs away)
11. Sleek-Eze, tool for getting out shedding hair in Spring
12. Magicbrush for getting particles off the skin to brush away and to make coat shiney
13. Hoof knife for taking tags off frogs

That's all I can recall for now!
