I am assuming that you are refering to suger beet (as we call it in NZ). Brilliant for putting weight on a hard done by horse. I had a TB/QH x who couldn't keep weight on while he was growing. I had a bucket that had litre marks in it and I would fill it up to the first litr mark with dry pulp and then it is 3lts if water to every kilo. So approximately 1kg dry beet to 9lts of water. And I feed that out over two feedings.
I mixed the feed at night because beet needs a good long soak so I found overnight to be perfect. If you mix it up and it seems like alot and you feel that you don't want to feed it all, make sure that you throw any excess away. Don't decide to feed the extra the next day it gets fermenty really quickly once it is wet. Hope this helps, good luck with thin horses.
