[RC] Shape of saddle tree vs. shape of horse - Wrecksduke

When you have a custom saddle made, the saddle maker usually requests back measurements of your horse, etc.

My question is....

Should the final tree shape (before padding and all are attached to it) sit in perfect complement to your horse's back shape?... i.e., no pinching, no rocking, no gaps.

???? then when the horse moves, their back changes shape..... so how does the saddle maker - using TRADITIONAL trees - shape the tree to account for these changes at the walk, trot, canter.......?
