Bucking horse when being led in & out

Help,
I have a 4, nearly 5 year old TB. He is my first horse and I love him to bits. However, he has this habit of bucking occasionally when we lead him in from the paddock or out to he paddock. Don't get me wrong, I don't think it is nasty, just excitement but he is 16.2hh and can sometimes knock you off balance. Also I fret because it is a busy yard and I wouldn't want him to kick someone accidentally.
He has a control halter but it doesn't make much difference. He gets a stern 'NO' when he does it then we make him stand before moving off again but I wondered if anyone has any ideas to help?

He isn't ridden atm as I'm saving for a new made to measure saddle for him & he not work in the round pen if it's boggy (which it has been with the recent weather).

Instead of making him stop and stand, make him move his feet and quickly. If he misbehaves, he has to work. Have him spin his butt away from you or his front end, back him up quickly, lunge him, just don't do the same thing everytime. If he's barging thru the gate, have him keep going back thru until he walks thru calmly.

TBs need to move, it's been bred into them. Making his hindquarters make larger circles than the front end is tiring and after he does this a few times he'll figure it out but it may take even three or four times so don't get discouraged if the first time doesn't work. Some work you can do in the pen even if a bit muddy is teaching him to stand at liberty. Why this is important is he should stand and wait while you pass thro a gate then invite him through.
