The current barn is good for you WHEN you're there, but not so much for your horse due to no grass and being in a sand lot.
The newer barn is already a step up in quality of life for your horse, and you'll be there but not many places to ride.
Riding is as important to me as quality of life for my horse. You need to ask yourself the same, because if you find yourself needed a designated space to ride (like marked trails or pasture or arena) then the new barn isn't filling all of your needs. It could be a good transition barn since it offers better care for your horse than he's getting atm. (I'd be so concerned about the pen with sand...)
