I definitely would go with a thinner pad probably a 7/8" or 3/4"

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

I like the 5 star pads. A little more money but worth it IMO.

I've been happy with this one:

I've also used two of these under a western saddle with good results - they are each about 1/2" thick:

I've also used one of the above with this between the saddle and the blanket:

That is a bit odd, but it works well with our mustang and an Abetta saddle.

That's not a saddle pad, it's a mattress! Lol. No more than 1" thick. This mattress is causing the saddle to float yet at the same time can cause it to pinch behind the shoulder blades.

I'm going to ask a fairly obvious question, but since I can't see the horse without the saddle I'll ask it anyway. Does the horse have withers? I had a QH who had no withers and it didn't matter what pad you used, thick, think, moderate, if he turned sharp you were going upside down because the saddle would slide right down his side. Solved the problem with a breast collar. It still slipped a little bit but couldn't slide all wht way down his side because the collar restricted the movement.
