Great question. I'm not entirely sure, since I don't feel like I understand your dad's reasoning to staying at the barn.
Maybe catch your dad in a good mood, tell him you'd like to better understand his reasoning, and ask him if he'd explain it to you. As someone before mentioned, don't whine or get emotional. Just be as calm and open as you can while he's explaining, and don't put your two cents in until he has completely finished. When it is your turn, say something like "I'm glad to know how you feel." Then calmly explain your side, mentioning that being around that guy makes you uncomfortable, and for your safety sake, you'd like to distance yourself a bit. The more you can turn it into a 'discussion' and less of an argument/battle, I think he'd be more willing to work with you.
