For an eventer I would pick stable 2 based on the soul reason that it has a cross country course. It's such an integral part of training I'd be willing to work around the weather/lack of indoor (chances are you'll be at a show trying to put in a stadium round in the rain and you'll be prepared!) . You can always take lessons somewhere else until April.
I boarded for 5 years at a barn without a XC course and it's a royal pain in the butt (and expensive) to have to trailer out everytime you want to go school some jumps at another farm. It'll be nice to have it at your finger tips!
Just think the money you save in gas can be used to pay for the more expensive lessons :)
Plus the more experienced staff is a big + in my book, too!
