Short legs, New Saddle

I have a wee problem, I have a short upper leg, from my butt to my knee, I have a 24"inseem, which is short, im 4'11" and so I have problems finding a saddle where my knee reaches the knee block, maybe an saddle where the knee block is adjustable. Under $1500, will have to ship to canada.

Bates, collegiate.................... etc

Have you tried any with a forward flap on them? I'm 5"1' and own a Wintec A/P and posting, I couldn't keep my knee bent and I was reaching with the stirrups properly adjusted, my trainer suggested using hers which has a shorter foward flap at the knee and have eliminated those two problems. Oh and hers also doesn't have any type of knee roll on it, it's a plain flap close contact.
It's a County that she got used cheap years ago.

If you have a 24" inseam from your butt to your leg, you must have super long legs..... I wear 32" inseam for tennis shoes. Where did you measure from and measure too?

I think it might be short from that, I know from my crotch to the floor is short, maybe shorter than 24"...?

Any suggestions

Have you tried a youth saddle? I used to have a collegiate all purpose youth, the flaps were really short on it.

ETA: I think collegiate calls them "undergraduates" now
