alternative to replacing stirrup leathers/fenders

I just got an awesome deal on a gently used Tucker endurance saddle by mail, it is comfy and seems to fit my horse well. It fits my gynormous butt but not my long legs (why does the world think all fat girls are short?). Anyway, I love the saddle so short completely replacing perfectly good stirrup leathers, does anyone have suggestions on rigging (safely) "stirrup extenders" (western rigging).

Did you pull the straps out on the front side, which lets the back side leathers go up and around the bars in the tree to make them longer?

Most Tucker Saddle have Fenders that allow for people with about a 34" inseam use them.

If your inseam is longer than that you could use something like this, puts your foot in a riding position too Saddles Tack Horse Supplies - Redi Stirrups Stirrup Turners

I did, unfortunately I am just shy of 6ft with a 36" inseam. No sooner did I post this than I talked to a friend's dad and he suggested just using a piece of leather and punch same size holes, use fairly heavy leather string to attach it to the bottom of the original piece and then put the buckle into the leather extender. Going to try it this weekend unless I hear of something better.

A friend used stirrup turners which gave her the extra length she needed. She is 6' with a 36" leg.
