You still have some control that way and can prevent her from running off. Keep her attn on you and only when she is calm slowly let her go. Don't jump back either just step slowly away. You can't feed into her high energy in this. Ideally your horse should wait until you walk away to leave, it takes practice to get to that point, but it definitely is do-able.
    this is what gets done with Pumpkin. He is not allowed to walk away from me when I am still 'working' him (even turning out). Also make sure you are the first to walk off, so she knows she is allowed to go .

    Like others have said with the bucking, ground work. No real help here. Lol. Havent had that experience thankfully.

    Hope it turns out alright for you and your girl!

    Let her know the field isn't "her" space, and she's not free to go the minute you walk through that gate. My yearling went through a stage where he'd give a "buck-kick" in my direction when I turned him out a couple times. I made it a habit of taking him through the gate, and then backed him high speed halfway across the field, and made him do some pivots, picked up his feet etc general stuff, then he had to stand quietly for a full minute. I also did the same thing MN Tigerstripes mentioned and loped the leadrope around his neck before unclipping the lead so he didn't associate that with immediate freedom. He learned he's not free to go until I walk away, and the problem never happened again.
