Traditionally you're supposed to put 7 plaits in the mane, which is about all I'd be able to do in my horse's mane since someone decided to pull it without my knowledge or consent
Maybe it's different in Ireland? For Hunters that's what we do over here.
Here's a picture (off of the Internet) of what we do.

That sucks that someone pulled it without you knowing! I would hate that!

^Very interesting. I'm confused over how those braids are done. We do them in little bobbles and you can't see the any little piece of braid under the bobble.

The way I've always done them is to braid down the little sections and braid a folded piece of yarn in with it starting about halfway down. Knot it with the yarn at the end, and then you take a pull-through and pull the yarn/braid through at the crest but you don't pull the knot or anything above that through either. Then you take the yarn (one end on either side of the braid) and knot it underneath, then you come back over and knot if halfway down the braid, which makes the little 'bump' on top. It's kind of confusing until you've done it a couple times!

I plait my mare's mane just for the heck of it (definitely not perfect either!); I get atleast 25 everytime. However, I haven't pulled her mane much.

I think nowadays people put as many plaits as they can, I used to try for 15, some people would do about 21 (always has to be an odd number!) but I've never attempted to do as many as 30 or 40! Don't you're arms fall off when you're finished?!

I was really annoyed about it, but couldn't say anything, if it turned into a 'fight' I've nowhere else to keep my horse

Lobelia that would suck!!! Did you get revenge? Tehehehehe....in Aus we use the typical english style rosettes too but I think those US hunter braids are kinda cool! I'd try them but i'll have to read up on how to stitch them up like that

I usually do about 25-30 but people all have such different 'rules' about how many is right ! I only do hunter braids btw.

Is it ever ok to braid on the left side, or are people who do that just wrong ?

Hunter braids are actually really easy once you learn how to do them, I suck at explaining it though !
