Welcome to the forum.
It's really sad that we hear this all the time when there are no written contracts. In any case, btw, I'm not an attorney so this is just an opinion, it is a civil matter and not a police matter. She can threaten all she wants but if your horse is on her property, she can not stop you from getting her.
I would call the local police and let them know that you are going to her property to retrieve your horse and tack and that she has threaten you not to do so. Unless she went to the courts and legally seized your horse, she can't just say that and expect someone to obey. Owing for back board needs to be proven and she simply can't do what she seems to be trying.
You may also have a case for negligence on her part for what happened to your other horse. You really need to speak to an attorney about that.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
