Don't feel bad I thought that at first too.....i thought they meant like one jump stirrupless but nope she did the whole course(but 2 jumps in the beginning)

I'm so jealous of her seat she can definately call herself a good rider!

wow that was intense, she is a great ridder!

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

Wow, that was impressive.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Wow. I don't even know the first thing about show jumping, and I'm impressed.

I do agree that she is a great rider, but does anybody know why the horse was bucking... Could have been nerves or that he was spooked cause he knocked the jump... But I honestly think it was cause the rider was over using those spurs... Maybe not though. Anybody really know?

I wiish I had her skiiills man. Very impressive and I hope she didn't hurt herself when she awkwardly fell off to the side in the end.

A ride a day keeps the worries away!

Very nice rider, shame she bit it in the end. She had many opportunities to take back her stirrups but knew that she did not need them, so focused on the course and not that.

Horse was a handful for much of the video, not only the bucking.

I highly doubt it. Show jumpers can be pretty high strung and this looked like pretty normal antics to me. If she was using her spurs, it's likely because he was being one heck of a brat and not wanting to listen to her cues, and charge the fences instead. Unfortunately, a lot of the aspects that make a show jumper so scopey and successful are the same things that can cause them to blow pretty hard when they get too fired up.
