|dw:1333336091582:dw| in horizontal simple harmonic motion, the line will be reference line and at reference line the gravitation potential energy will be zero,Hence we can ignore gravitational potential energy,But in the case of vertical motion this can not be neglected.. |dw:1333336399880:dw|

note: if mass of block >> of mass of spring then potential E of block>> of potential E of spring there for you can ignore potential E of sring. You know its there you dont say "there is none" you ignore it to your calculations
