Question jumping saddle for long legs

I'm looking for a jumping saddle which will fit me and the horse (good start eh?) but yeah, the horse has a short back and definitely can't take anything bigger than a 17 1/2, (thts small for a 16.2 :P) but I have stupidly long upper legs. I used to ride in an 18 inch stubben parzival with blocks, not rolls, but that didn't fit the new horse at all, as he has a pretty flat back. Id like one with blocks rather than rolls so I can get my knees in front of the saddle, but would be willing to try something else. Our saddle recommended albions and barnsbys with regards to fit for the horse. Finally, it needs to be available 2nd hand in the uk, not paying for a new one, i'll be going to uni soon and don't want to lose too much money on it.

Many come with a long flap option, and you can find those used as well. Butet and Antares come to mind.

Will that make it longer vertically or more forwards? I need to be able to get my stirrups quite short too

M Toulouse offers several models that are forward enough for the long legs. I myself have Claudine.

Edit: Just noticed you are in UK, not US. I'd look into Berney Brothers saddles (say, http://www.berneybrossaddles.com/sto...ory&path=59_70 ). I tried some used ones here and while they didn't fit my horse they definitely accommodated my long legs nicely.

I have an Ainsley saddle and some are specifically geared towards people with long femurs, like myself. Ainsley Pro National, to be specific.
