Compared....which one do you seems better?

Current boarding facility:

And another possible move:
The second choice is a little further away, but has 200 acres (from what I hear), 2 arenas (which you have to pay to use), and a waiting list until this summer supposedly. Thanks!

Personally I like the looks of the second place better - it looks more put-together, clean and professional.

Ok guys, im going today to look at the other place. I talked to the guy and he wasnt going to be there on monday, so im going alone today. He sounds really nice and like he knows what he's doing. I just hope it will be worth it. Let you know how it goes when I get back!

Oh wow! That's cool that you're going today. I hope the new place works out.

The first barn didnt have pictures so it was hard to tell but when by looking at the second barn I have nothing to really complain about. Not a big fan of the stalls but everything else looks fine.

Alright guys....i like the new option. The horses are out from like 9am-330 pm and then they get hay and they are in for the night. There are clean runs and spacious stalls. The owner seems nice, a little quiet and stand offish, but sincere. It is however, 20-30 mins away, and by paying the arena fee, it equals to $320 for board. And that's for daytime only use, night use is a different charge. The big arena is usually stocked full for the high school equistrian (sp? Oops) teams and team penning. But there is a scheduled time for normal usage. I really like how its more open and the horses can socialize pretty welll.

The place im at now is 5 mins away from my house. Its $335 board, has round pen, free arena usage, and descent stalls (however, the runs are about 1 ft of mud that is puddling with green stuff). There is little turn out outside, and its about 6 acres to about 30 horses. Plus the owner is unfriendly, but I can deal with it. He's just rough with the horses sometimes.

Ugh im so confused...i don't know what to do :( ill have to think about it some more
