Its easy to make a police report and free to boot. No harm done there. You should print out the messages off your computer and bring that as evidence. Keep your BO in the loop too. If you feel these threats are legit, then someone needs to know about them.

Is the BO worried at all? Sometimes what we consider a big deal is already sorted and handled by the people involved. If the BO is worried, I'd ask what kind of measures they are taking to protect their property and yours and then go from there.

I just reread the thread and saw that you are only 16... Definitely involve your parents if you have not already! You may be very capable and mature at your age, but it is wildly inappropriate for a grown woman to attack you in this way. Your parents would likely have something to say, and it makes it even more important for you to file a police report.

I think that this is worth noting to those who underestimate the capabilities of crazy horse people: several years ago a 19 year oldish boarder was kicked out of a barn I know for starting drama with other boarders. She moved her horse within a couple of weeks, and one of the barns mysteriously caught fire and burned to the ground the next day. Multiple boarders and the barn manager lost all of their tack, and a boarder uninvolved with the drama lost two of her horses. It is possible that the timing of the barn catching fire was a coincidence, but I don't believe it for a second. I hope that the Bo is taking these threats seriously and taking appropriate actions.

Ditto the tip on involving your parents. They need to be made aware of any threats on your life, your horse, or damage to your property. It may feel like the people who are threatening you are just 'talking', but please take it serious. Lotta crazy people out there now days.....

Thanks for the help guys! This lady is in her 30's so, to me, her behavior is ridiculous but again I'm only 16. I may not know if it's acceptable or not;) I know I shouldn't have gotten involved especially if this girl is nuts...could you say I'm a little to loyal to the BO's?
As for her messages, I have shown them to my parents and the BO. They have done whatever they wanted with them, and I have since deleted them from my phone. My father did let my uncle know(police officer) and he will be with me until she leaves the barn. Depending on how she leaves, he may even stay with me for a little while longer.

She's still at the barn after issuing the threats that she has? Board owner needs to get her out so she can't threaten other boarders and has no right to access the property (i.e. Horses not there she has no reason to be there) If I was the BO I would hire a security guard to be there during the times the barn is unattended for a while just to be certain nothing happens. Its hard at 16 to deal with this situation, just stay focused on your horse, make sure your parents know what is going on and avoid any contact with this woman. Good luck.

After the behavior she has exhibited and the threats she has made to you and your horse there would be no way in heck I would stay at that barn if the Bo gave her more than a couple of days to move. You can say that you feel loyal to the barn owner, that it's the best place in the area, anything, but you make it sound like this has been going on for a little while. If the Bo doesn't have the will to get both her and the horse out immediately when threats have been made to other boarders and their horses then I think it's time to start looking for a new place and have a talk with the Bo. Your horse's safety should come before your loyalty to the Bo if she won't get her out in a timely fashion.

Thats one thing my mom has expressed to the BO's that if this girl won't leave, we will. The issues from before have never been this drastic though which is one reason I'm guessing the BO has let her stay this long. So far, it's been 6 days since the incident. I do know that the girl is still trying to stay but after the way she treated BO, me and I guess another lady at the barn, I doubt she'll be able to sway BO's mind.
Both Slash and Spirit are okay as of now, all of my stuff is still there so I hope I'm not jinxing this lol

She should be gone by now. Were it me, I would give her until the end of the weekend to boot that horse out. One week is plenty reasonable for her to find a new home for her horse, especially given how she acted. I would have a serious talk with the Bo and your parents today saying that if her horse is still there Sunday night then yours will be moving Monday morning. She can then either get her act together and evict them, or she can lose another boarder in the process.

We need to talk about this!!! I had no idea this was going on!

Anywho, she's lucky she didn't mention any of that to me because she'd either be hospitalized or in jail. Why is her gelding still in with my mare!? She's not gone yet?

You didn't do anything wrong by standing up for BO, she's been through enough lately that this is absurd. I'll find that gelding a home if she puts a lien on him. You were MUCH nicer than I'd have been had she threatened me or talked about BO like such.
Regardless though, you can't leave..nope, you're my riding buddy.
