I use as thin a pad/blanket as I can get away with. If the saddle fits really well you don't need anything thick. Actually the thicker your pad is the farther you are from your horse. Some thin blanket are made to cover a pad for showing. Those might not be suitable for single use.

Unlike an English or Australian saddle, the tree of a Western saddle is very close to the horse. There needs to be some material between the tree and your horse to absorb the concussion of riding - thus the saddle pad.
Pad thickness depends on what you are doing. A long tail ride or ranch work needs a thicker pad then W/T for 1/2 an hour in a ring.
