Being Solicited for board
The guy who owns the place where my horse is in board has been sexually harassing me. Comments about my bust size my butt etc. I put it out of my mind thinking "oh he's just a lonely old man let him look" but lately it has gotten physical. He has put his hand down my shirt slapped my butt etc. I asked him not to but today while I was out there I talked to him about possibly doing a trade for this mare that I have been training and working with. I normally charge $1000 for braking and training, my horses always get trained to bit and hackamore as well as spur trained, trained to the crop, trail broke, trained to cross bridges and water with a rider and all of the basics. He told me he wanted between $500-$1000 for her so I figured since I have been training her that we could do a trade instead of him pay me to train her and then me pay him for her.
So this morning I talk to him about it saying That I was looking for the best way to get her/what I want and get him what he wanted for her. He said "I dont think you can give me what I wanted" while reaching out to play with the zipper of my jeans. I of course told him no and he said "well pop in some time and we'l take care of some of your pasture rent with it". Soliciting me! My dad knows that he has tried to put his hands down my shirt once already but I cant tell them about how bad it is because my mom doesnt think I should have a horse and that anything I get myself into because of my horse is my fault. And I cant let my fiance know because he will leave basic to kill this guy and the Marines is his dream.
I plan to report him but I want the mare and my horses out of there before I do so that he cant cause problems with them. It should be known to the other boarders what he is doing because most of them are women. I dont have someone to go over there with me all the time so its either only go once a week or go by myself. Its just a bad situation all the way around and I want to get out of there/away as quickly as possible. One of the other boarders keeps spreading rumors and lies about me as it is. I have done nothing but bend over backwards to make sure this property is safe for all of the horses especially when the other boarders horses got mange and they wouldnt call the boarders to let them know.
Should I report him now or wait until my horses are safe?
Should I use it to get full ownership of this horse? (threatening is really my think but I've been told to already)
Do I just take him to court?
