When he trots does he have a big stride? If so I would try english. If he has a little stride western would probably be better. Some riding pictures would be helpful =]

I think once you begin working with him you'll get a better feel for his way of going. If he has a nice slow jog, and a lower head-set then I'd say western. Hard to tell until you get hem going on the longe line and under saddle tho. Arabians do so well at both English and western I bet you could easily do both in the long run.

The under saddle pics will be easier to tell.

Aww he is really cute! :) I'd see when you start riding him what might be better, usually it's easier to know then. He is so cute!

I think he looks like he has a big english trot.
