Another saddle question!

Hello campers!

I've just looked at the Sport Saddle Pages on the 'net and I
understand that they have two 'trees'...pommel and cantle and a 'pad'
type thing in the middle to sit on. Now in the UK people go on and on
about 'clearing the spine' and that you should be able to see through
along the spine from cantle to pommel such that nothing is pressing
on the spine. So! what I don't understand is this: with the Sports
Saddle is the spine cleared in that middle tree-less bit? If not, why
does this not harm the back? Do the Sports Saddle people supply
saddles with english style leathers and irons or are these impossible
to fit onto the pad thing in the middle? A final question...why
oh why is there no UK agents for any of these spangly US products?
