mane on which side of the neck

Is there a side of the neck which the mane should be on? I am asking this because at my barn there are only 4 or 5 horses out of almost 40 that have there manes lying on the left side.

Supposedly they are supposed to be on the right side. But I don't think it even matters in shows.
I just let my horses' manes pick their own side. I've had two lefties and one righty.

The Traditional side is the Right. But I have seen them both sides in shows..

On the right. You ALWAYS braid on the right, and try to train your horses mane to fall on the right if you show.

My mare is the only one out of my seven horses that has her mane on the right side.

I agree with the right side, every horse I have owned and shown has had their mane on the right side.

But really it is what side the mane falls on naturally.

Its funny, because everything else is done on the left side. Braiding it to the right and leaving it for a few days can train a main to stay to one side.

I think this was the traditional reason, braiding it on the right kept it out of the way!
