Wow, you guys look great! Lots of good advice here, and I'll second the advice to give him abit more rein. It might be scary if you think he'll pick up the cadence a bit if you do, but it's worth working on before the Congress. He might drop into his frame a bit more. You use the arena beautifully, though, and go into the corners nice and deep. I know it's so so hard, but try to get your own "real estate" on the rail. Every time you have a lot of air between you and the others, watch the judge - his eyes are on you!
Other than that, you are a lovely pair. Good luck at the big show.
Oh, and is your horse by a Tripple Tabu, by any chance? I used to have one of those!
