Contrary to popular belief, riding side saddle is as safe, if not safer, than riding astride. Sitting aside dates back to antiquity and developed in European countries in the Middle Ages as a way for women in skirts to ride a horse in a modest fashion while also wearing fine clothing.
It has retained a specialty niche even in the modern world. In the s, Jules Pellier invented a sidesaddle design with a second, lower pommel to the sidesaddle. In this design, still in use today, one pommel is nearly vertical, mounted approximately 10 degrees left of top dead center and curved gently to the right and up.
The lower right leg rests along the shoulder of the left near side of the horse and up against the second pommel called the leaping head or leaping horn. It is mounted about 20 degrees off the top of the saddle. The rider places her left leg beneath this pommel, with the top of the thigh close or lightly touching it, and places her left foot in a single stirrup on that side. The impact of the second pommel was revolutionary; the additional horn gave women both increased security and additional freedom of movement when riding sidesaddle, which allowed them to stay on at a gallop and even to jump fences while fox hunting and show jumping.
With this design, nearly all recreational equestrian pursuits were opened to women, yet they could also conform to expectations of modesty. For example, a world record in sidesaddle show jumping was set at 6 ft, 6 inches at a horse show in Sydney, Australia in Said world record: Mrs. Esther Stace riding sidesaddle and clearing 6'6" at the Sydney Royal Easter Show , , a feat made possible because of the leaping horn.
