Is it just me or does #1 also look cresty in the neck? She is pretty obese.....and you will probably end up using a grazing muzzle or dry lot on her, would be my guess.
Honestly-I sort of see them all as projects in different ways.
#1-has she been ridden on trails? It doesn't say, and she may be a horse who has only ridden in arenas.
#2-I like-but again-only 5, and little is said about experience, and at 5, it may be a bit limited.
#3-definitely a project, and may just be worth the time, who knows.
#4-young and has only done trails. If that is your main purpose, I would consider her. BUT, I also bought one about this age who was totally trail broke. He was fabulous on trails, but, if you are not a beginner and asked him to do something like take a certain lead-he had no clue, and honestly-in my case, got a little pissy when asked. It has taken me a long time to get him to do anything "ranch work" like, or ride nicely in an arena.
IMO-all horses are projects of sorts, as they all have something more we want them to do. (mush like we as riders are never totally "finished") I also believe they all have vices. THe key is to pick one who has "issues" you know for the most part, and can deal with.
Good luck-you have some nice prospects!
