Best way to alleviate that sag is by consistently making sure he has good form when riding, if you know how to collect him at a trot, be sure to keep him collected and work him in various directions. Change it up don't just go in a circle in both directions.
My TB has really high withers and he gets a hunter's bump if I don't collect him and work his hind end.
I also find lunging to be helpful because my gelding naturally collects when there's no weight on him and he's lunged in a tighter circle, at that point he doesn't really have a choice; in order to execute his circle he must collect.
