    Just like people all horses have a side that is better than the other. You will notice it when the horse you are riding picks up his/her leads easier on one side vs the other, the canter lead will be smoother on one side vs the other, it will be easier for them to bend to one side vs the other.
    Most of my horses have been better on their left lead.

    Jeddah is generally better on the left, but she's quite even

    My barrel horse was to the right.
    Lizzy picks up her right lead quicker, but she never gets the wrong lead when she goes left.

    I don't know much about Charlie Brown's paces, I haven't ridden enough horses or gained a good enough seat to really tell, but he seems pretty level on the trot. However, I think I'm detecting a slight preference for the right lead, as he springs more readily into canter then and doesn't try to drop back into trot from it.

    Misty is better on the right, I think because I am, but i'm right handed

    Charm is more balenced on the right side cause he's an ex racehorse

    I know most of the horses I have owned up until now have been ottbs which means they have pretty much only been worked on the left side, making them more left handed than right.

    I don't think I have ever owned a horse that wasn't better to the left
