I definitely agree that half-chaps or tall boots help!
About the spot where the leathers attach to the saddle, though... That is the saddle, and there's not really anything you can do about it. My first saddle had the same thing, because it was a cheap saddle, and I would always have bruises on my thighs from it. Ouch.. I guess it's cheaper to make them that way, because my new saddle is a lot nicer, and the buckle where it connects is sort of recessed into the saddle a bit and it doesn't push the flaps up.
If you're really serious about english riding, I would consider looking into getting a Collegiate. It's what I have and they're reasonably priced and excellent quality! ...and sooo confortable. :)
