Depending on if you get shredded or pelleted beet pulp, it will more than double in amount when soaked. We get shreds that have been rolled to break them into smaller pieces. Those will be 4 times as much when soaked. I would start with 1/4 to 1/2 scoop. That would make between 1 and 2 scoops wet. You don't want to make too much because it can spoil in time when wet.
You can't feed too much beet pulp. It won't cause colic like grain or founder like alfalfa. If the horse eats it all, great. If not at first, they will when they get used to it. If you can, split up into two feedings every day.
Beet pulp is like that half way point between grass and grain. It give good nutrition without the health concerns of grain.
