I can see what loosie is saying when he calls her a bit on the hefty side. The mare DOES have a fair bit of muscle on her.
I have peeked in on this thread several times to look at the pictures again and to see the responses. Honestly, I was quite surprised that the OP thought she was thin or skinny. I see a healthy weight for a 3 year old. Yes, you can see a bit of her ribs in the one picture, but if you look at the mare overall...thats the only spot that she shows a bit of bone.
You are on the right track OP, with what you are feeding already. She is still growing, so she is going to look a bit ribby at times. Free choice hay is the best bet.
