I'm really pretty clueless about jumping but I'll give it a go from what I saw and thinking about the horse in balance...
Horse A (the bay) didn't land particularly well over the largest jump and started bucking, possibly to realign something or because something was pinched. Had he had a rider on board they might have had a hard time sticking on on the landing, he lost his balance for a second there and a rider would just have accentuated that.
Horse B (the grey) landed in a much more balanced way and comes out of the landing pushing off from his hind end.
Horse A was also quite hollow coming out of the second jump into the third, compared to Horse B, who was well-balanced. That may have been the cause of the poor landing on the third jump for Horse A.
