From the USEventing rulebook:

Omits an obstacle. Obstacles not included in the course should be crossed but failure
To do so by the arena party will not preclude the elimination of a competitor for
Jumping an obstacle not forming part of the course.
B. An uncorrected deviation from the course incurs elimination (EV154.2e-.i and EV154.2p
So, technically, they shouldn't have gotten eliminated because she wasn't ON course. She completed it before she did the jump. My assessment is that it was bull that she was eliminated
