The horse is a TB for starters, they shouldn't be portly. I have two insulin resistant Tennessee Walkers; they aren't quite as svelt as the horse pictured, but I sure wish they were.
There is nothing wrong with the horse's weight. I can't see the back bone and she's not "hip high".
This is one of those "if it works, don't fix". Leave her feed regimen alone unless she's on any sort of sweet feed; then switch her to something without so much molasses but has the same general Guaranteed Analysis and ingredients on the bag.
Reading labels and understanding them has become a crucial part of horse ownership in today's world.
