He lacks real impulsion from behind; which could be because he is going so slow (not a trait I like about WP, WH). Even in his trot, he barely reaches well under himself with his hind legs. He 'looks' pretty, but I probably wouldn't put him up over a horse who was driving well under himself, even if he was going a bit faster. He also lacks alot of muscle through out; his neck, and wither could be improved probably even drastically with exercises to improve the neck and back strength. Some groceries, and muscle building exercises (I love the "101 arena exercises" book) to help him build 'oomph' in his neck, and power in his hindend.
Your position looks nice though; you're alert, and attentive to your horse, and what's going on around you. I would like to see you stop correcting him so much though; you tended to keep his nose tipped in too far, even though he wanted to keep it in a decent position (which is straight from poll to nostril).
