May I suggest looking at the thread about taking your horse for a walk? Here: Taking your horse for a walk! Maybe when you go out to "ride" for an hour, you start with 5 minutes on the horse, and the rest walking. Then increase the riding gradually as you learn what the horse can handle, and as you both gain condition and perhaps lose weight.

A horse can carry 25% of it's body weight successfully on a 50 mile endurance race. I weigh 193 plus saddle, blankets and water bottle or 220 pounds running weight. My guy weighed in at 870 pounds and we ran 35 successful endurnace races. I kept him to 50 milers because at 100 miles I would be too heavy.
He is now retired and carries a 250 pound rider, an older gentleman who rides easy. So a 870 pound horse can carry a 250 pound rider easily.
Your horse is heavier as is your weight but ride easy, find out if the horse has problems and go from there.
