Is my horse too thin? Or does she need some more muscling up? She's a 9yr old KWPN, 16hh, She goes out for 6hours, 5days a week. She was stabled 24/7 until April when she started going out for a few hours a day. She is on part livery so they feed her and muck her out. Se has 10kg of hay a day and 2 scoops of chaff and 2 scoops of conditioning mix twice a day.
I compete her in showjumping, team chasing and xc. When I bought her she had a big bum and was generally alot chunkier. They did a lot of dressage and schooling though whereas I don't so I would expect her to change shape.
I am now moving her to a different yard where I will be doing her and she'll be out 24/7 unless its bad weather when she can come in with as much hay as she needs :o)
Please can you just give me your opinions, I know its hard just with photos but i'll try ad include as many as possible! If she's underweight, hopefully being at the new yard will help, but if its muscle...then please can you give me some ideas on how I can build this up?
I currently ride her 3 times a week generally, including competing on a sunday.

Her hips stick out more than you can tell in the photos.
All help welcome!
