Fore Girth

I just saw a picture of a fore girth today and am intrigued, has anyone ever actually seen one in use?

A picture for anyone, who like me, has never seen one before
Apparently it fits under the front of the saddle to create a false wither to stop the saddle sliding forwards

Never seen or even heard of that! I can't imagine it would be comfortable for the horse as it must create quite a pressure ridge under the front of the saddle, but I can see the appeal of making a wither.
