OP, if you truly work with someone that ties legs up to get them to "submit," I highly suggest you run away as fast as you can and find a new mentor. Real life isn't The Horse Whisperer. Real life takes time and effort.
First off, WHY is she bucking? Have you had a professional saddle fitter out to check the saddle? Have you had someone check out her back and legs? Until those two things are complete, I hate going beyond that advice. Most people prefer to skip right over my "spend money to figure out if the horse is in pain" advice, and go straight to "how do I fix it without considering spending a penny on making sure they aren't overlooking pain. Some people can check the basics themselves - but it takes a trained eye, and my gut says you don't have that yet.
