All sidesaddles are required to be in safe, rideable condition, whether new, original or renovated. Fit of the saddle to horse and rider is paramount.

Leaping pommels are required on all saddles except those used in 2-gait costume classes, and balance girths are required on all English sidesaddles. Western sidesaddles should be stabilized with double girth, draw strap or balance girth as necessary.

Breakaway and/or safety stirrup of modern size is recommended.
