If you are riding hard every day, then the amount of grain you are feeding is OK - otherwise it is too much. I would cut back on the grain and increase the hay. If you are not feeling ribs, then you are certainly not under feeding, but I would just change up the proportions.
I have always fed by weight not volume. My 1,200 lb horse, Bonnie, gets only 1lb of feed x2 per day, the rest is nightly turn out and a couple of flakes of hay during the day in the paddock. We ride once or twice during the week and a long trail ride on the weekends.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
