No matter how much your horse grows/muscles out, the whithers will remain narrow and high. You may have a little widening, but not much.
The saddle honestly should naturally "fall" into place...as in you can shift it on the horses back and there will be a spot that naturally "feels right."
When tacked and girthed, you should be able to get your fingers between the pommel and your horse's whithers...if you can't, you need a tighter tree or you can also try a built-up cut-back pad if it only needs a little raising.
Both my boys were a nightmare to fit...Hoover takes a semi quarter (6.5) and Gun takes a regular (6").
