Lacey's a really chunky Arab so I'm obviously not going to be as helpful as someone with a more slimly built Arab, but Weatherbeeta's have worked really well for her. The one bone I have to pick with them is that the drop length is always much longer than I need. Since Lacey is just out of the pony sizes, I can't give them a try. I bet the pony sizes would work great for you, if he's small enough.
I'd imagine that Pessoa's would also work for you because I have one for Lacey and it's a little too narrow. They're on the pricier side but when I compare my Pessoa to my Weatherbeetas, the quality difference is evident.
I've also heard good things about Schneiders. I've never used one though so I can't be for sure.
I would definitely get a blanket with rear leg straps, whatever you do. I've found that the leg straps really seem to help keep blankets on. I've never used a blanket with a bellyband so I can't be of help there. My one wonderment is if the bellyband would get gross since you have a gelding (I've never blanketed a gelding so I have no idea about what gets gross and not... haha)?
