One meal or two?

If my horse gets 2 lbs of ration balancer can he get it all at one meal?

Two 1 lbs feedings would definitely be best.

Two feedings is better then one. I currently feed my horses grain once a day they get 4lbs and do fine with one feeding.

Yeah it's not so much the size, as long as it's not a large meal, but it's harder for them to digest & they get less from it, the less frequent the meals, and depending on ingredients - grain for eg - it can be problematic if fed infrequently too.
