Don't use fresh horse doop in your garden, it is best used after composting for a good organic soil, and will need supplementing after that to be fully rich.
Horses process the stuff less than moo moos and the goat family critters so it needs more time to break down. Stock pile it so it can heat up, and add grass clippings and leaves/ vegatables to it to give it a kick. Turn it over once a year and by the end of the second year!! You will have some nice material.

Thanks for the comments.
We are 1 acre + lot, neighbor is TDY says won't be back 1-2 yrs trying to do this least cost and spreader, great idea, but ... seen them et up after only a year. Caustic poo(?) and left out wet _not_ good for sheet metal. Aluminium Stainless even galvanized and the price goes up. Currently back half of their lot not used and mowed only minimally as needed.
Poo gathered up manually, into plastic garden wagon and spread once a week.
