Using hind end and the growing horse

I know that a mature horse that is conformationally (sic?) downhill (butt high) will have a more difficult time using their hind end correctly and will be heavy on the forehand. Does this same concept apply to young growing horses?

Is it overly difficult/impossible for them to get their butt under them when working or because they are going through the high-level-high stages does it not apply?

My guy probably has almost a hand difference in the withers and highest point on his butt right now. At speed I can see him really reach underneath himself, but at the same time, I feel like he carries his head and neck really high to compensate for the <perceived> lift in his front end. Maybe I am imagining it; just thought I'd ask.
