Original Message Horse Manure as Additive
All you will need to do is pile it with
the used bedding and it'll compost. You
do run the risk of having two much
nitrogen and may need a suplemental
source of high carbon materials (saw
dust, leaves, straw ect.) I also
believe most people would suggest you
let it compost at least a year before
directly appling to a garden.

A local horse farm here directly
spreads the maneur on an unused
pasture. The soil is really good there.
But field grass is a tougher plant than
a tomato

Hope this helps
