The video camera is your friend, here. If you don't have one then borrow one. Or rent one. Or buy one. But get someone to video you as you ride and as you are being coached. Make sure that they know how to run a video camera!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But be prepared for what the camera will show for the camera lens does not lie. It can be manipulated if the human chooses to do so, but if the filming is honest then what you see will be what really happened. The lens does not care who you are or where you came from or how much you paid for a horse. That makes it a true friend, but one that you might not want around all the time.

cameras are a godsend! Through that lens you'll always find something to work on.

Get some video and even post that for some pointers as there are plenty of knowledgable people on this site in the TWH area who have great advice. Utilize all your resources when you're learning because this is a challenging breed, also very rewarding when you get it right, at the end of the day it is a lot to take on training and learning at the same time. You've got a horse who has the basics for you to work with, and so you're not starting from a horse who doesn't walk at all, he definitely like you say, has the potential. :)

Your horse's tail is swishing like crazy! Have you looked at your saddle fit? An ill fitting saddles can definetly impede his gait (and hurt his back)
