i'm a plus sized rider at 5ft 10 and 270lbs (i used to be close to 290, i've been working hard!). i have been told at the last barn i took lessons at that my seat was wayyyy softer the then skinny 115lb girl. i had a friend's mom tell me i'm way too big for my horse, but he carries me just fine. and its not like i take him out and jump him, or gallop him. it a lot of walking, some trotting, and a small bit of cantering. i hate it when people think horses are babies and can only carry tiny people. i beg to differ!
