Can anyone tell me what these are used for?

So I got my new saddle yesterday (Crosby Prix de Nations). In the pictures I saw that on the right side of the saddle there are these 2 dee rings, and in person I got to examine them, but I have NO idea what they're used for.
I thought at first to secure a saddle bag, but the ones I've seen they go over the cantle and secure onto the billet straps.

Anyone have any idea?

I'm pretty sure those are for attaching a saddle bag for food and such. You can get really nice leather ones, but I never thought they were very useful unless you fox hunt. Most english saddles I have seen still have them though
Here is an example of one:

Congrats on the new saddle by the way!

Oh that's so cool! Do you think it would throw the saddle or rider off balance if you had water in there?

I go on trails and would like a nice place to put food/water and my cell phone and that seems awesome!

Don't put your cell phone in it. If you fall, you want your phone to stick with the one who knows how to use it, lol.

Get a belt clip holder and wear a belt with your breeches, or wear jeans and keep it in your pocket.

Those loops are for different martingales or breatsplates. If you use a breatplate they sometimes attach to the D-rings in the front. There is also a strap that helps to keep saddles from sliding off and can help a little bit so it doesnt slide to the side and that would attach to the back hooks.
