Well actually, while I guessed what you meant by it, the initial thought that came to my head in answer to your subject heading was 'fat horses & laminitis'!
So... what do I think of when others say good pasture... aside from the above? Tends to mean rich, high sugar, cattle fattening 'improved' varieties such as rye and clovers. Leafy more than stemmy. Generally(here at least) means grown on well supered paddocks.
In contrast, what I consider good pasture & hay for horses is lower sugar, stemmier varieties and maturity. A wide range of different types on naturally &/or appropriately fertilised land that balances the nutrients available.
