1. Pockets
2. I need it to be thick, because I will be riding for 4-5hrs (So that it can give padding to my horses and saddle.
3. Not to heavy

Am I asking to much lol

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.

Here's a good one:

Derby Originals English Saddle Pad Quilted with Pockets and Half Fleece for Tack Wholesale

It has large pockets and it is half lined with fleece for extra "padding."

I have this pad Toklat English Trail Pad with Pockets. I got mine on ebay for $25 though, looked brand new. It is made of really heavy duty material on the top, and the bottom you can get wool or the coolback material.
