Weight loss is the same for horses as it is for humans - you have to take in less than you put out. The obvious answer is increasing her level of work (I would add riding time, not lunging time -- hitting the trails in winter can be lovely, and hills are great for working her muscles if you have any nearby). I know it is not much fun to be out in the cold winter weather, but sometimes we have to do what we'd rather not for the better of ourselves/others. Exercise will not only help with the burning of calories, but with the overall toning of her body - and toned/fit muscles and bodies burn more calories even when at rest than a non-toned/fit body.
