I have never composted horse manure before, but I had a co-worker that had horses and she set aside the manure to sit for a year after which she used it for flower gardens. She called it black gold and never told me about weed problems.
The mushroom compost is wonderful stuff and if you are interested, right now is a great time of year start if you are feeling ambitious. I can provide you with more information if you like.
