Anyone want to help in my first horse search?!?!?!?!

Looking for a my first horse
My parents haven't fully agreed so keep the horse $3000 and under
I'm a hunter/jumper so I want a horse that can jump
I want a horse that can jump preferably 2'6 and up
The height I want is 15.2-16.1
I don't want a tb or an Arabian but will take a cross of one those
Also I want a horse to be calm and sweet but still bring some challenge
I wish to show with this horse so if it had show experience that would be great but it's not mandatory.
Also my zipcode is 20165 (VA) so up to 50miles if you really can't find anything you can go up to 75miles

THANK YOU I really appreciate it

Don't know what type of horse they're looking for in the hunter/jumper, but he looks like he would be good.

Is there any particular reason you wouldn't be interested in a Thoroughbred? I've known and ridden many AMAZING thoroughbreds who are great jumpers and pretty laid back horses. Of course there are the stereotypical excitable/spooky ones but there are also some fantastic ones that are calm and steady. They really do have a lot of heart. Was just wondering. :]

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it
