I am unsure what your typical weather is like in California! Will you be able to ride outside most of the year? What do you typically do with your horse.. I.e. Trail riding, western, english, training in a school etc..
I would personally move. If you're not happy, it reflects hugely on your horse and your life through stress. I made a similair move to a much better yard, and it was amazing how much weight came off my shoulders, and I felt a lot happier k nowing my horse was well cared for.
However, I have nothing against automatic water cleaners, and cleaned mine out daily myself. Takes two minutes of my day.
You should get a contract drawn up for the new place, as if they are not used to dealing with private owners it covers your backside as much as theres, so you can draw out what is in your $195 a month.
