I agree with Kitten, if the saddle fits her nicely, then you don't want to add extra bulk underneath the saddle because you will be causing more issues than not. That's like putting on thick socks in a pair of shoes that already fit you comfortably, walk around for a while like that, and you'll cause blisters and other issues that cause discomfort.
If you want to protect the horses withers, I would look into a dressage pad, that has the extra thickness in the pad that will protect the withers. You can even buy dressage pads that have sheepskin underneath the areas you want to protect. Or even a pommel pad.
