My best friend's QH mare is 14.3hh and is built like a tank. Her boyfriend rides the mare quite frequently and he's 6' tall and probably 230lbs. Tinkerbell carries him with absolutely no problems. Heck, she's packed around me when I was at my heaviest (5'7" and 260lbs). As has been said, as long as the horse is built well with good bone, it shouldn't be a problem. Look at cutting horses. Most of them don't even top 15hh and the cowboys riding them are in the 6' range and probably close to 200lbs and they're getting down and working hard.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show
you that I can.
