One rein stops are good, but I have one horse right now that is still really persistent. She bucks every 3-5 minutes because she thinks if she keeps on I will get off. (she went lame and bucked, we realized she was lame and got off right after she had been bucking)
My advice would be relax deep into your seat and hang on. Keeping the heels down is really good advice too!!! :) It helps you to hang on to her more and keep yourself from being thrown out of your seat as much. Each time she bucks work her harder and try to reingage her mind. Do large circles or firgure eights to help her start thinking and listening again.
