It helps to know what you want it for. But just looking at them, I'd say my favorite is the last one and I really don't like number two.

I guess you are wanting a TB? What are you going to do with he/she? More info please!

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

The first mare is in foal.. So, if you don't want a foal, I wouldn't get her.. especailly if you haven't had one before.
The second one looks very underweight to me... well, not nessecarily pony but just too thin.. he also has a bit of a swayback..
The third mare looks kind of ribby, but it's a bad pic so I can't see. Are TBs uaully built like this? (I'm not very familiar with them.. Our barn has only ever had two and one was only there for a month) She definately looks under-muscled, too.. :\ Also, you've said you were using them for jumpers, eventing, XC.. it says she's a dressage horse, better on flat, so.. :\
I like the last one as you can continue to train her into whatever you like..

the third one gives most info and a video. I don't buy the reason why they are selling her. She is too small? Also even with lots of training $3,000 is too much. However she is cute and probably worth a look but I wouldn't pay more than maybe $1200. Without more info and videos I would say call owners, talk to them and when possible go look first hand.

Also a known horse may be better than a gamble on one you don't know.

I suspect there is more going on with the one that has the video than they are saying.
