What is a spur stop?

A spur stop is when a horse is taught to stop (rather than go) off of the pressure of the heel or spur. It's often seen in pleasure classes, but considered incorrect everywhere else. (If the spur means stop then what the heck means go?)

I admit to some bias here, but I've never seen the utility in it.
