Would you consider horse riding to be animal abuse?

Some people would consider horse riding animal abuse. First of all, some people could argue that horses should not be held captive for human use in the first place. Next, the weight of a person riding a horse is uncomfortable and unnatural for horses. Finally, when it comes to racing, many jockeys whip the horse to make them go faster, which certainly causes pain and discomfort. I honestly, don't think it is, but I don't use a whip and horses weigh hundreds of pounds. It wouldn't be uncomfortable to carry a 80 lb. person to a 600 lb. horse
