Not really. A horse is typically 'popped' with a whip on the hindquarters, and sometimes the shoulder. These areas are all heavily muscled and not easily wounded by a light pop from a whip (though it is highly possible for welts to be raised). Horses have a higher tolerance to pain; remember horses will kick each other full force and be able to walk it off.
The whip provides more of a sound and a tiny 'sting' from the popper end, nothing more annoying than a fly bite really. Racehorses are trained to respond to the whip from a young age, it's more about the horse understanding that the touch of a whip means to go faster or run straighter, not about inflicting pain on the horse.

Whips, spurs, harsh bits, all of which can be traced back to humans. You should know that spurs, whips, and harsh bits used correctly do not hurt horses.

And of course, things that hurt us hurt them, like cuts, bruises, sprains, fractures, scratches, pulled tendons/muscles, etc.
