I grew up around some horses but don't know much about horse riding. In particular, do people who ride horses have a preferred side to mount from? I ask because it comes up as a scraplet of evidence regarding someone's past. A priest recalls that a now deceased farmhand had only ever mounted his horse from its left side, even when less convenient than the right. This piece adds to evidence that the hand had once been a fighter or perhaps even a soldier (right-handed sword fighting is standardized in the current army, and so the scabbard sits on the left side of the waist). It's meant to be a minor supporting detail, but I'm wondering if vestigial scabbard awareness is simply just as or even less likely than basic habit.
