BOW OF A SADDLE. That part which sustains the pommel, consisting of the withers, the breasts, the points or toes, and the corking, and is called the fore bow. The hind bow bears the trosequin or quilted roll. The bows are covered with sinews to make them strong, and kept tight by bands of iron : on the lower side are nailed the saddle straps, with which the girths are made fast.
