There is no rule that you HAVE to, it's just more correct.

Correct or not, my horses mane falls on the left so that's where I band it. I've never been penalized.

It's not a big deal. Whats more important is that the banding/braiding is done well.

All my horses manes are to the right.
I have heard some rules, in dressage, the mane has to be on the right, and the plaits have to be a even number. Thats what i have been told, but I pretty sure that its only a appearance thing, no rules based upon it. But dnt take any special care...my plaits always turn out in a even number so...im in a win win situation hehe.

LoL My horses mane falls on the right side but it's growing on the other side too. So it will be on both sides. I'm never cutting it.

Hunters, you always braid on the right side. It's a tradition continued from fox-hunting...right side, that's just how it is lol. Dressage, it can be either side although the right is still more common. Banding, again, right is more common, but it's seen on the left also. Mares you place an odd number of braids. Used to be you had a set number, but now, you place more or less braids to best show off your horses neck. ie: heavy short neck, lots of longer fine braids to give the illusion that it's longer and more delicate. Gelding and stallions should have an even number of braids.

I don't know which side my horses mane falls on. I think its the left side? Is that bad for halter classes? My horse has always had a left side mane and I guess when he was with his original owners they took him to some halter shows when he was two and he placed in every class.

I read in a book once that it's supposed to fall on the right for geldings and left for mares.. but it was a 20y/o+ book on groooming, lol.

It's really the owners preference and the disipline that you do with your horse.
