Road riding question

In my local area in NE Kansas, I have to ride back roads to get to any
good place to ride, or trailer my horse somewhere.  Lately, when I'm
riding back roads, I'm having increasing trouble with drivers who persist
in passing me and the horse with just inches to spare.  I'm as far over
on the road as I can possibly get the horse and yet one person in
particular just HAS to see how close she can come to my boot.  A
pedestrian who witnessed this was shaking, holding her throat and later
said she couldn't even breath she was so frightened by how close that car
came to my leg.  Another time I had to drive the horse up a steep hill
along side the road to keep from getting hit because the car was not
moving over at all.

Does anyone know a good way to back the drivers off and get them to keep
a respectful distance while passing?  I don't want my horse or I to get
hurt, but I hate the thought that I have to trailer EVERY time I want to
