If you saddle fits padding is not a good way to go, because 1) it adds the bulk and 2) in interfere with the fit.
As for Thinline I'm not sure about less movement, but when I got it I was a very bouncy rider, so using it on my mares clearly made them
more comfortable on canter. Also when I jumped without the pad I could really feel the shock with my own spine, while with the pad spine doesn't feel any discomfort on landing.
