Finishing isn't the same as starting.
If your horse is already bucking, I would suggest finding a trainer for you and the horse, you'll learn a lot, and the next green horse will be easier. But why would you put yourself in danger, and damage a young horse's reputation when you yourself aren't educated?
I see so many people 'shocked' when my 6yo late starter is better behaved than their 10yo+ horses. There is no magic in it, its just good training with a good trainer.
Get a trainer, get some help, and then go from there. If its only for the first five minutes there is something that will be either causing him pain, lack of respect for you, or holes in his education- sort it before you end up in hospital.
