Pretty and Hairy...if she's got good feet you've just hit the trifecta!!!

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.

You've won hundreds and hundreds of dollars that can only be spent on the horses...of course it's coming out of your wallet over the next...oh, say 25 years!!!!

I thought it was the left side, but now I think there is no really 'proper' side, but where the manes fall I think (and this is my opinion) is the good side.

Well here is my rule of thumb. Mounting was done on the left side years ago when knights would mount from that side due to their sword being in the way. When I think about that reasoning, parting the mane to the right so it stays out of the way when you mount makes sense to me. I don't know if there is an actual right or wrong just as long as all the mane stays on the same side.

I personally prefer to the right.

M2G I think you can be right as you tell about the knight tough !!

I don't really prefer a side, my horses mane fall on both sides.

Ah, that makes sense. :) -lightbulb goes on-
I ride dressage and I've always been told that the right is the proper side for the mane.

My mare's mane falls to the left so I just leave it that way. -shrug- For one show I braided it on the right side and for the other show I braided it on the left. I think as long as the mane looks tidy, it shouldn't matter (in shows). Afterall, the judge isn't going to be judging your grooming skills when you're doing a dressage test. :P
