They all seem to be fairly sturdy animals. The first is very obviously very green, and they showed no real footage of his ability to turn/switch leads, etc- so that counts him out for me. He looks to be slightly over the knees, and more light boned than the others, as well.
Two looks like she has a good start on her, and seems to dig deep- but not seeing anything but her running the barrels once doesn't do much for me. If you were close enough to go see her/try her in person, I'd say go for it- but otherwise, I might pass her up.
Three is the oldest, which may throw you off a bit- but the good thing about being six already, is that you'll know that all of her bones are done growing and that she should be ready for the wear and tear that barrel horses go through. She was shown not only running the barrels, but also loping and trotting them, which says a lot about her controllablity.
All in all, I'd probably go with three as my personal choice. If you did decide on the other two though, I'd suggest trying to get their prices down a bit, especially with the second one. 4.5k is quite a bit for an unfinished three year old.
