Leafy is the best one. It's in small pieces and my horses LO-O-O-O-OVE it (they spread stems). We had drought couple years back, so all hay was fine cut and leafy - everyone in area said horses had a blast that year (expensive one though).
BTW, be careful with beet pulp - if you can borrow a little to see how your horse will eat it that's the best way to go. I tried it on both mine and ended up donating the whole bag to the rescue: they refused to eat it completely (they are very spoiled though, I know that... Lol!).
