Yes there are A LOT of different type of spurs. Ones that put more surface on the horse will be less severe then those that have less surfece. Like the difference between pushing on your side with your fist vs your finger.
Also spurs are NOT to make a horse go or speed up. They are there to refine cues. Nothing more or less.
