The tabs at the top, near the front, have a loop or a velcro patch that makes a loop. This goes around the front billet strap (the three straps that the girth attaches to).
The slot formed by the webbing at the bottom is for the girth (if the billets are short) or the billets (if the billets are long). When the girth goes through that slot, and attaches to the billets, the saddle pad cannot slide back. The top loops keep the top front of the pad from slipping under the front of the saddle (pommel).
Hope this helps.
