well i got this new horse and i normaly ride and show in western. but im not really to sure if he would be the best in western. what do you guys think? here's some pics of him!

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. :D He is so cute!

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