I would not use fresh manure ...best to allow it to rot a while yet.
Coffee grounds I would use as a mulch.
I would mix them together, cover to stop the rain getting in, and let them compost until spring. I think you'll have some lovely stuff by then.
What should I keep it in? And where!? Should I add anything to it or do anything?
I would keep the horse manure in a strong garden rubbish bag tied and leave it in the garden. You can keep the coffee grounds in a tight plastic container and use it as needed-do you have a composter? I put mine in there.
No composter and no room for one doesn't the manure need air to rot properly?
Yes. Forgot to mention to make a few holes in the bags.
Have you got stable manure including urine soaked straw or droppings picked up from a field?
You can use the latter on the garden as it is, though I wouldn't put it on babies. It's the ammonia in the urine that does the plant damage and the straw that needs rotting down.
I get droppings and they're spread on the garden on delivery.
