Is it true when platting a horses tail it is best to stand next to the horse instead of behind it?

When grooming a horses tail it is always best to stay to the side of them for safety. Horses can spook and kick at anytime, so it is always best to stay to the side so you will not get hurt.

Yes it is true that you should stand off to the side of the horse while working on their tail or a nervous horse could give you a serious kick.
