New Horse, unknown breed?

Hello, I recently got a new horse who I've named Chiron. (Kai-Rahn)
Chiron is supposedly Arabian x Welsh or Arabian x QH. He could be a mix of any of those three things and I just can't for the life of me figure out which. He prances like an Arabian. But that's the only defining thing that I've noticed. Help would be really appreciated.

-Thanks, Hannah.

I am not sure what breed he is, but I think something is wrong with your halter. The ring should be through the nose band.

Agree with this.

Also, with that photo no one will be able to tell what breed your horse is. Maybe try a few conformation shots from the side, and posting a video so we can see his gait at the walk/trot/canter.

To fix your halter, undo the noseband strap, feed it through the metal ring, and rebuckle it ^_^

I can't tell much about him either with that picture, but I'm leaning towards QH because of his face. I'd think he'd have a little finer of a face if he was partly Arabian. How tall is he?

Yeah, the halter is honestly giving us a bit of trouble. I'm trying to get some better picture for your guys but I'm having a bit of trouble getting out to the farm! I haven't measured him yet, but his previous owner did and said he was about 14.1.. Not too sure on how correct that is though.
Thank you!

Endiku's instructions should help you fix the halter problem - if not please ask and I'm sure someone would do a video to make it clearer
Yes we need some better shots of him

There might be QH in there but I'm not really seeing the arab or the welsh
Almost looks more like a draft cross

maybe curly/welsh? He reminds me of a curly I used to know. Doesn't look arab, AT ALL, and his head seems pretty coarse for a welsh.
