She just looks like a stocky girl to me. Many of the QH/Paint lines are very stocky and they look fat to folks used to the TB look.

Our mare, Lady, is one of these, too (14.2+ hh, 1100 lbs). She is a big butt, stocky girl, but quick like the wind and will go all day on the trail with energy to spare.

Hey it's fine with me if she's just a stocky woman! She's just been out at pasture doing nothing for years so I figured she was out of shape and overweight. I'm still new to this so I don't really know how to distinguish between stocky and overweight.

Try doing a body condition scoring evaluation on your horse. You can find several on the internet, e.g. Body Condition Scoring of Horses

It's a more reliable way to get an idea if your horse is too thin or too fat than just look or weight.
