I was in a very similar situation to you. I also was looking at a few barns, and the one I liked best was a little further than I liked. I ended up going to that one though, because I liked it the most, despite the distance.
It sounds to me like you would be happier at the first barn, so that's what I would go with. My drive is about 30-40 min a day, and I can still make it work most days (I'm a full time college student). Anyway, hope you figure it out. Good luck!
