mane on the left or right - which is 'proper'?

There was a thread on this once but I can't find it. What is the 'proper' side for the mane to be on? I always thought it was the right but I've seen a lot with it on the left and my new horses is on the left as well. So yeah, which is 'right'?

On the right but I guess it might change between countries, like the side of the road
Then again, a handful of top showing people plait on the left mainly on the right though

If you roach it you won't have to worry about it (only kidding but Dumas would love it).

It used to be considered proper form to have it on the right but today it doesn't matter. I would simply work with it in the way it falls naturally. I have one that falls to the right, one that falls to the left, and a pony that splits down the middle :roll:

Roach it!!! her mane is sooo pretty. It hangs below her neck. There is no way I could ever do anything to it lol but yes dumas would like that

So basically these days it doesnt really matter which side its on? Then it shall stay where it is

The right, but it really depends on where it falls.

I don't know what is proper, but just like parts in hair, some fall naturally to the right or left.
