Got the new horse home need help getting some weight on him?

So I just brought the new horse to his new boarding stable. He has been determined to be at a 4 on the body scoring. My main concern are his ribs sticking out so much. He is an 11 yr. Old QH gelding but with some Arab in him about 15.3hh. He was on 2 cups beet pulp soaked with 1 cups pellets/1 cup Equipride 2xday and free choice low quality grass hay. I cannot do the beet pulp at the stable so I bought Nutrena Empower Boost. How much of this should I be feeding him? (If you can convert the lbs. To how many cups I would love you as I don't have a scale). He is also on grass/alfalfa mix hay and will be on pasture in a couple days after his quarantine period. Sorry the photo isn't the best but you can obviously see his ribs which I think is odd because the rest of him look fine.....ahhhh.
