I would point out..If you were at a rodeo or barrel race you probably saw something that straps to the saddle but not the child, the child is usually wearing something kind of like really short shorts or underwear made of the opposite velcro. It helps the child keep their seat while running but if something bad did happen the velcro pretty easily come apart..I wouldn't put it on a small child but I think it's fine for older experienced kids like 7 or older who just need that little extra sticking power until they are big enough to keep their seat..Children aren't the only ones that wear it..I've seen older people, even into their older years, that wear the velcro things..I'm not sure of it's name, I've never used them. I DID see Martha Josey use it at NBHA world and thought is was a little odd for her to but when I asked she just said that she isn't as strong as she used to be and at bigger barrel races she uses it just for extra sticking power..That said, I wiuld NEVER use something that did strap a child into the saddle with no way of coming loose but I would feel comfortable using the velcro thing.
Well..didn't see the above post until I had posted mine..I'll post the link anyway. Sure Grip Saddle Seat
