I'd be feeding her as any other 'easy keeper' horse; grass/hay 24/7, preferrably low NSC, or if not, grazing limited & low NSC hay provided over risky periods. Some alfalfa and whatever appropriate minerals & other nutrients may be needed in order to balance her diet, including omega 3s(flax seed a good source). So it sounds like you're doing pretty well!
If/when she needs more energy, more hay, alfalfa, and healthy, high fibre, low starch feeds such as beet pulp, rice bran, etc are good energy sources. Feedxl.com is one great resource for info & analysis on diet & nutrition.
