how does she respond when you brush/groom her? does she flinch and nip at you when you run your hand/brushes along her back??
pain aside, i ride at a barn with lots and lots of lesson horses. They come up with all sorts of things to do when they have a child on their back. Rein rooting (which nearly rips children right out of the tack), crow hopping, ear pinning, you name it!
Sometimes a horse can be downright moody. Help from a qualified trainer might be worth your dollar and time.

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

Why don't you just get the saddle fitted instead of putting a whole bunch of unnecessary pads under her? Your mare is obviously in pain get a chiropractor out instead of trying to cover-up the issue.

Very mature response

Yes, a few blankets under the saddle WILL lift it slightly, but it ALSO put more pressure over the wither. How many pads are you going to add before you realise the saddle doesn't fit and you need to get it fitted correctly?
This is very much a quick fix, lazy alternative to getting a saddle fitted. If you're not going to take people's advise on this thread telling you get get your saddle fitted, good luck trying to 'fix' your mares snarky issues, which I would put money on as being a pain or discomfort related issue.
