All Purpose Saddle Pad Question(warning: contains stupidity)

So I feel pretty stupid asking this but I am really new to english riding and didn't even know anyone that did until pretty recently, so I really know nothing.

I recently decided I wanted to try riding english too and I'm in the process of buying an all purpose saddle.
What I'm wondering is what on earth is that velcro strap for on all purpose pads, the top one towards the front of the pad?
I'd assume it must attach to a part of the saddle..maybe this question will automatically be answered by common sense when I get my saddle but I'm staring at this pad and curiosity is killing me hahaha

Thank you =P

Thats ok. It attatches to the girth under the saddle flap to hold the pad in place, but they arnt nessicary.

Miss katie pretty much said it. =D

It goes on one of the billet straps under the saddle flap. You don't need to use it and a lot of times it won't even fit.

Those are the billet straps, and girth loop. It helps keep the saddle and saddle pad together. Some people love them, some people hate them and cut them off. It is really up to you, but it doesn't drastically help with anything, so you really don't need them.

I actually made a video showing how to attach it:
