I don't know your area, but where I am you wont find a dead-broke 5 - 12 year old for $3000.
You might want to look at something older, been there done that. The age range you're looking at for barrels and poles will probably be going for much more IF they act as you describe. People will pay a lot of money to have super safe horses for their kids. Plus, you're not going to find something THAT quiet at 5 - 6, I'd narrow it down to 8 - mid / later teens. Breeding farms don't just deal in foals, they often have horses of many ages for sale.
