N Saddle, L Saddle-what's the difference?

I've been looking at some breast collars, and I see some listed for N saddles and others for L saddles. What's the difference?

The closest I've come is a D and S designation. I wonder if it has something to do with it.
Taken from Dennis Lane Horseback Measuring System

"I have adopted the letters D & S to designate the broader categories of the shape of the horses back. This originates from Xenophon, a famous Greek horseman who was considering this problem in approximately 360 BC. Xenophon described horse’s backs in two ways, double back (D) or single back (S). With the double back, the flesh rises on either side of the spine, so that the spine lies in a slight depression. Single backs, have the spine rising above the flesh forming a ridge."
