GB, Yes, when a horse turns or puts his head down it does get little tighter in-between the bars.
The position of saddle placement is a guide using conchos, but to find each Horse natural Pocket for each Saddle, I place the saddle on the Horse with no pad and slide the saddle back and forth to find the Pock, visualize where this is and when saddling with pad put saddle in that place.
Horses can change a little over the years especially under 6 and over 15 years old , but if the Saddle is giving good sweat patterns and all other areas seem to fit well, maybe a Breast Collar will help since you are doing steep hills.
