how much weight is too much?

I finally convinced my dad to take a trail ride with me in the summer when the weather is alot nicer. My dad, though he's not overly heavy, is probably (I'm guessing here) over 200 pounds.

I don't want to put him on Sonny mainly due to Sonny can be spooky and I don't want either to get I was thinking of putting him on a Belgian/Appaloosa cross or a Gypsy Vanner...two of the more heavily built horses.

Do you think that one of those two would be able to hold him without too much problem? I'm leaning more towards the Gypsy Vanner....mainly because the Belgian/Appaloosa can spook sometimes.

I am going to work with the draft cross and see if I can get him less spookyish but I don't know if I'll be able to or not.

We might end up not doing it after all, but we might do it though.
