In our local open shows everyone does the same average Quarter horse thing(In halter classes). But I'm showing an Arabian Ive always done it like Quarter horses but do you think I should do the Arabian way since she's an arabian?

Well, I think it depends on what you really want to do with her.
In order to show in a recognized Arabian show where she could earn points, she needs to have her registration papers current, and the cost is quite a bit more than a local open show. I mean, expensive. Some classes, in a Region show for Arabian halter, you could be looking at $300 just to enter.

So if you're SERIOUS about it, then yeah, absolutely I'd go for it. :)
If not, then I'd just stick to local shows, but I'm sure if you did some digging around, you could find some shows that are for Arabians, just not AHA recognized.

I think you should stand her up in the best way that flatters her.

Local horse show judges are not looking for the "hard stance" but they are looking for a horse that is well presented.
