it doesnt matter which side it goes on, I took my lil' pony megan to a show with my lil' cousin on her and her mane splits down the middle, she still got 2nd. I think it doesnt actually matter to be honest but it just depends on what the owner of the horse wants to do with it

Once a ride, forever a friend!!

Both Gem and Montana have it on their right side. Vega's mane is still undecided. Lol though at times it looks like it'll fall to the left.

LOL... Roach it! (Glad to know that when I'm busy on the weekends my opinion still gets counted! )

I don't really think it matters as long as it's tidy. (showing) It would truely be a beast of a project to re-train the entire mane to lay on the opposite side.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I have always been told for show horses (stock types: QH, apps) that it should lay on the near side--the horses left. We always trained babies' manes to grow that way. If left to their own too long, then we banded on which ever side had the most natural lay. But on halter futurity colts, we always trained them to lay on the left, since it's more desirable.

My sanity is with my horse...if you see either of them please send them back!

Red face

All my horses mane falls to the right hand side.
I heard a instructor say once, 'if your right handed, and you jump, its better to have your horses mane on the right. Because when your jumping, your right hand is strongest, so when you release your right hand can grab somemane' (and ofcourse, the way I see it, if it falls that way, it would be easier to grab??)

I hate long mane lol..

I was at one show that the owner of the horse split the mane so that it fell on both sides. It was braided with braids running down the left side and running down the right.

Most unusual.
