Which side of the neck?

Does it matter which side of the neck the mane falls on? For shows I mean. Right now I'm training my mares mane to lay on the right side. Is this correct?

I think it's more the owners preference. I don't show, so I don't know if they have rules? Generally, I think the right side is more popular though.

I was always taught that the right side is correct. Actually my new mare's mane falls to the left.. So I'm braiding it over so it falls on the right side. I'm not sure that it would make a difference in the show ring- but I'm sure some judges have their preferences.. and best to be "correct" than lazy and incorrect, I'd say.

I love lane - I'm a righty to and I'd imagine that the right side would be easier to braid then the left side, lol. Oh well, to each his own.

I was always taught that the right side was far more correct, but you won't be thrown out of a showing class if its on the left.

I the correct side for showing is the right side. If your horse's mane falls to the left you can easily braid or band it over to the right. It should begin to stay on that side. :)

If it is incorrect to be on the near side for showing then I would have been disqualified a million times over the years and not won multiple world titles. Show me the rule that says you HAVE to put it on the off side..........................
