Many dressage saddles have two long billets for the saddle, and a billet on the flaps, to hold them down. Often,as in the case of my saddle, the offside flap has a long buckled billet (girth) that buckles to the flap billet on the on side.
Often the riders legs, in dressage, will cause the thinner flaps to curl under the leg. The flap girths stop that. They are a pain, but I do not take them off. If your saddle has a standard thick flap, I probably would.
Your third long billet is at the same place as the other two? I can't say I've seen that before.
