Dressage boots for long feet and skinny legs

I've been on the lookout for a new pair of dressage boots for several years now, with no success. I'm willing to get custom boots as a last resort, but I would really rather find something for less money.

Here is my problem: I have long feet and skinny legs. I wear Ariat Heritage paddock boots, size 10. They fit me perfectly, and I love them. Unfortunately, Ariat's tall boots are always too big in the calf. My calf is about 12.5 inches around, and my ankle is TINY. If I find a boot that has a small enough calf/ankle, the foot is always too small. I've basically given up finding a pair of pull-on boots, since I have no idea how I would fit my big feet through the tiny little ankle size I'll need.

So, does anyone have any suggestions? I have no idea where to start, so any ideas would be helpful. Also, to make things even more inconvenient, none of the tack shops in my area (or even the surrounding areas) carry dressage boots. So I'll have to either order online or travel somewhere.

Like I said, any ideas will be very much appreciated!
