What kind of hay? How old is the hay? What does it weigh? I have seen 20 pd bales and 50pd bales, It may just be filler and not have nutrients.
2 cups is not much feed. When I had the safe choice rep out they had suggested 3 pds for my horses of good weight but getting worked a bit so I think 2 cups is not very much and then you are also riding a fair amount.
