I was going to ask this too. A small percentage of horses can buck no matter where their feet are, but most cannot buck, at least not well, if you disengage their hind end. I would practice suppling this horse with the one rein stop to where you get him "un-straight" (if you get what I mean) whenever you ask for it. Most horses can only buck well if their bodies are straight. Shoulderfore will also put him in a position where it would be difficult for him to buck. He needs to understand that there will be a consequence to his bucking action, hopefully before he's gotten you off enough to where he knows he can get away with it.
