In fitting saddles, including treeless saddles, it helps to know if the saddle,
and your horse, are more suited to "arch" or "apex".
Arch refers to a shape that is more similar to an upside-down "U" (mutton-withered).
Apex refers to a shape that is more similar to an upside-down "V" (higher-withered).
