Hm. I think it depends on your saddle fit. If your saddle fits great, then I would go for the thinline. They do have some nice pads, and I really believe they do help absorb shock. I've watched a horse go from okay to nice with a thinline, along with a better rider... But he did have a funny back, and I really think the pad helped.
Now, if your saddle doesn't fit too well, I'd say no, get something thicker. I would say get one of their thick pads, but those get really expensive. I would just find a good quality thick sheepskin.
