She will be in pain. Get her checked out as soon as possible
I'm wondering why a rescue horse, or any horse for that matter, should not be hobbled. It is a terribly useful thing to teach a horse, if done properly. Also does not cause pain if taught and done properly.
As for the bucking thing. As has already been addressed, if this is a recent thing, tack fit and pain issues would be the first thing to look into. If the horse just doesn't behave when she wants to do things you want her to that she doesn't like, that's a lack of respect. Separate issue from a possible pain issue though. The lack of respect should be dealt with before it gets worse.
