Lyric looks like more of a hunter to me. She's a cute mover! And will do well in the average undersaddle class. She also uses her body quite well free jumping. So I see the most potential in her. However, if she's a little green and you are not very experienced, I would say pass and keep searching. I'm a firm believer that beginners should start off with solidly trained horses. If you are an experienced rider, disregard my last sentence!
Lyric looks ok. He seems a little short strided to me and doesn't really carry himself like a hunter. To me he looks more like an equitation horse, possibly a veteren jumper. I'm honestly not that impressed with him. Plus he's 16 which is about the age when lots of horses start showing some of their age and value begins to decrease. But if he's the bombproof type that's been there and done that and can teach someone how to get around a course and that's what you need? Then great! I'd say him!
I just reread my post. I meant to say MAVIS looks like a hunter to me! (first horse I talk about) the second horse I talk about was lyric.
sorry if there was confusion.
