Give him time. My experience with pure or mostly Polish Arabs is that they're super sensitive to anything. I learned the hard way to, more often than not, act like "as if" nothing had happened....brought my gelding back to earth much faster and left him wondering more than once what he had spooked at....;-)

he is cute. There are many horses in CA that need rescued. Hope he settles down some, he should come to trust you and once he fills out and sheds out we will need to see another pic.
