I have also used washers, like you buy at the hardward store to weight it. They have a hole in the middle like a donut, so easy to tie onto the braid.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

I would prefer the sleezy over anything simply because it reduces the risk of mane getting ripped out but if you have your horse where you can monitor them (like in a stall or such), you could reduce the risk of them getting it caught somewhere.
Maybe it's a British thing? I see you're in the USA :)

It is probably just habit or something XD I seen a horse with his mane to the left and I told the owner and she was like ' I know it is on the wrong side ' XD

Huh, I didn't think there was a preferred side. I thought it was whatever the way the mane grew. I think Gizmo's is on the left when facing him. Except for that little bit on the top that likes to fall over to the other side.

So hoping the weather is nice tomorrow and I can groom Gizmo up and then I want to attempt to do this.

Just to add my 2 cents I've heard from several show people that apparently the mane on the right side is right and the if it falls on the left it is wrong. I'm not sure but I think they just said its something to do with showing them.

My two horse Apache and Sammy are my world
along with our dogs Patch and Bear.
But I will always love you Jimmy R.I.P

I've heard that the mane should go on the right too. Fortunately my horses mane falls to right (I think?) but I'm glad it doesnt split sides because that would bug me a little haha.

Ginger's hair alternates sides. I have a picture right after we got her where her mane falls on the right side. But now all of it is on the left side. Ugh!
