English pad question?

Ok, so i'm relatively new to english riding (i've done it a few times for fun but never purchased much tack, etc). I've noticed that the majority of english saddle pads have these little strap things..
Just wondering what they are for & how to use them?

They are to keep the the pad from slipping, the bottom are for the billet straps and the top attach to the...i'm not really sure how to explain it, but I don't use the top ones because they make my billet straps uneven lol

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.

I got it from my local tack guy, but they're pretty easy to find on the internet. Try ebay, Amazon.com or www.statelinetack.com
