I always pull it over.
I'm weird I trim/pull the mane and always leave the forelock to get really long.
H's forelock was just under 12inches when I measured it and the rest of her mane was hogged/roached.

If I'm showing I put it under and off to the side. If I'm trail riding or riding at home, I keep it over because it helps get flies off of their ears.

i think it depends on the horses hair as well as the preference of the rider. if i put it under i like it braided or if the horse doesnt have a lot of forelock hair. i think it looks to bulky if the horse has a thick forelock and it is shoved under the browband. i would rather it be over the browband to show it off if it is long and pretty. i ride western so most of the time i use one ears or have nothing on the ear or across the face so i dont worry with it much.

Over, all the horses I ride are Icies and Icies tend to have thick forelocks
It's a pity I can't show off my Swarovski browband though...

My Western bridle's not decorative or anything so I put the forelock over. If you wanted to show the browband without the forelock looking messy, plait the forelock like so:
