I agree with Joed. When they threatened you then, while they were still there, I'd call the cops.

Have the cops let them know that if anything happens to you or the horses they will be the main suspects.

You could also try to get a restraining order.

Now, all this doesn't help if a horse is hurt. Might be best to move.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

We have two agencies we can call, either our Ministry of Natural Resources with trained officers or our Provincial Police. I've been advised it is better to call the OPP. If what this gal is complaining about is commonplace then it's time to start contacting landowners, 2 friends who know two friends and so on, and get a letter, not email, letter campaign going putting pressure on the agencies who enforce the laws. Send them to whichever office (not familiar with US) would best suit your needs - state governor's office. No one ignores a few thousand letters. All you need is one sentence, As landowners we demand the right to protection from trespassers. We did this. The onus was on us to find the trespasser and kick him off. Nothing like an election coming up. The onus is now on the trespasser to be sure there is no tresspass. We do post as best we can and a 5" red dot is now the accepted sign.

Remember they are saying that YOU might accidently get shot. When you tell the police, make sure they hear very clearly that they are threatening YOU as well as your horses. Tell them your scared and need their help. That will work.

The OP has not been on since 12/31. I hope all went well.

Hopefully she found a more suitable and safe location to move to with her horses.

In case not... does this apply? Georgia Code - Crimes and Offenses - Title 16, Section 16-11-39 - Georgia Attorney Resources - Georgia Laws
Might be worth calling up somebody who can read and interpret the local laws/statutes in more detail than I have time to at the moment... but threats are threats. Hope all is well.
