Default Would using horse manure be ok?

I have a local horse ride shop that gives it away and my dad used to go there for his tomatoes...thoughts for a potted lady finger dwarf? Maybe a mixture of manure, peet moss and soil?

If it was me I would say yes! I would compost first. I compost my cow and chicken first. It is pretty strong fresh. My sheep manure I have potted a large banana corm in 100% fresh sheep manure and it grew fine. Sheep and rabbit is a lot different than horse manure though.
150+ Varieties!!. See profile for list. Help me add more!

I have a mat of Pisang Ceylon bananas next to my horses stall and it gets plenty of horse manure straight from the horses stall without any problems at all. Watered in very well and the plants love it. Never used it on potted plants. Are you planning on taking the pots in the house? I love the smell of horses, just not in the house...
