My suggestion would be to take the lessons on an already english trained horse. Fresh off the track Puck is going to be general riding illiterate :). While you have experience in a western saddle and could start Puck that way, english can be a little different and starting to learn on a horse already trained that way will help you advance much faster.

He is a beautiful boy. :)

Try it out just give yourself enough time to determine if you really like it or not.

Nene (pronounced Neh-Neh) means little boy in Spanish.

No reason not to, but no reason that you have to. Give it a shot if you want to, and you can either stick with it or go back to the western world no problem!

I think you'll really enjoy trying a new discipline. English and Western have a lot of similarities but they are also so different, and if you try English, you might realize you love some English disciplines and you might want to try both!
