Both these d's are on the side of the saddle. They are deffinatly not for breastplates or cruppers.

there are dee rings in the front for the breastplate. Don't all saddles have those? (atleast the AP's and CC's I have do)

I had a clip to attach onto my belt and it fell off one time. That's why I got the thing to go around my leg.
It's never fallen out, but I just get nervous.

I doubt thoses are for a saddle bag -- for one thing they're not durable enough. Another thing saddle bags should always be evenly weighted, so you would have to have the same on the other side and also, at that location the bags would be in the way I think. I think they are for attaching an ID number/flag in competitions.

No, it is not used for any martingales or anything of the sort.

The D-rings are used to attach a leather "lunchbag" if you will that people on a hunt use to store a small snack and a drink.

They actually are for saddle bags. As already mentioned by others, they are for traditional a "hunt" saddle bag. They're not meant to hold much weight at all, so no real need to be balanced.

I have a brown one just like above. I think I've only used it once, lol. It's cute though! I usualy trail ride in my endurance saddle, which takes standard western saddle bags.

haha yah you definitely want to keep your cell on you and not your horse incase you get separated! If you have water or something heavy try to center it in the back (behind the cantle).

On trails, since I feel carrying my phone in my pocket is too bulky I tend to stick my phone in my half chaps. It fits perfect there and I don't have to worry about it falling out

I'm going to see if I can make my own little water bottle/food pouch to put on my saddle to see how it is. I would hate to buy something only to find I don't like it there.

I wonder why they don't have the rings on the other side of the saddle...
