Unhappy Moving yards or not :S

I don't know whether to move yards or not :s
Where I am now there is a house, 2 barns and 5 stables, there is an old couple who rent the house but they are moving out. There are 2 other people at the yard one is fine and is really friendly however the other one steals stuff, tries to make life difficult for me and the other person on the yard and has basically taken over the whole yard she won't even talk to me, she has 9 horses which means she's down there a lot. Anyway she's moving into the house and I don't like going down the yard when she's there.
I first went to the yard when I was 9 I'm 15 now, my mum chose it for me then, there was no one else there so it was nice and quiet plus its literally right next to my house I can see my horse out my bedroom window. I know it doesn't sound that bad but it is... even before I knew she was moving in my friend said I could keep my horse at his house, the thing is it's about 2 miles down the road, I know that isn't far but when you have to catch the bus at 8 o clock in the morning it would mean I would have to get up really early.
Where I am now cost 25 a week for a field and a stable, however the other place is a friends old competition yard has a menage, horse walker, cross country course, basically everything I would ever want.
I just don't know whether to stay somewhere where I know my horse is happy and has lived for years or to move a bit further away where she might not be happy but I will (except for the distance). In a year it won't matter as much as I will have my moped by then :S
I don't know what to do

Any advice?

Hmm. That is definitely a tricky situation. You need to weigh the good against the bad.

1. she steals ur stuff
2. she's a pain
3. she'll be there 24/7 cause she'll live there which could possibly make you start to not like riding and horses.

1. you have more/better facilities
2. nicer people
3. no more stealing
4.competition yard with competition people?

If I were doing it I think I'd move. If you move you'll have more facilities, probably no people trouble, your stuff will be safe and you'll be at your friends. Your horse will probably settle in eventually. If not just bring him back.

Move yards The change will be good for you and your horse :]

There was a girl at my barn who would steal stuff and wasnt very friendly to her horse. I got my horse from her (poor Jack). I'm SOOO glad she left with her pain horse ;DD.

I agree, Ive seen just one person ruin a barn for other people and they either just left or in one case stopped riding all together.

From east to west a travlin gypsy found her prancing pony for now their hearts run as one...into the north
