If you are in a boarding situation, I would inform the BO of the horse's dangerous behavior. No boarding facility I have been at would allow such dangerous behavior. The horse would have to leave, or be worked with by the owner or a trainer to fix whatever issues the horse has.
If the BO is not willing to talk to the owner and demand they fix the problem, I would be finding another place to board. Charging horses are dangerous, and the issue should not be taken lightly. In the meantime, I would carry a whip when you go in there to protect yourself. If the horse comes after you, give it to him hard and drive him away (be for warned though that some horses will take this as a challenge and fight back- so have an escape route just in case). Also, inform the BO that you will be taking a whip in there to protect yourself against the other horse. If the BO says no to the whip, I would be packing up my stuff and horse, and leaving immediately.
