Yes you are asking too much, or rather you are asking the wrong question. English saddles aren't meant to be worn with a thick cloth or numnah - that would be like getting a pair of shoes that fit your feet, then trying to wear them with four pairs of socks.... too tight!
A properly fitted, properly flocked saddle, with a nice numnah to soak up the sweat will be comfortable for the horse all day. You don't need extra.
Edited because I didn't read the op properly
Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
