I've had to deal with bucking horses before, but nothing as bad as what you're dealing with. Basically, when he went to buck I'd kick him forward. The faster he goes the harder it is for him to buck. I'd have him at an extended (very extended) trot until I decided he was calm. Bring him back down to a working trot and if he tried again, off he went to extended. I would trot to the point where he'd want to break into canter, but never allow it. Worked for me... dunno if it'd work for you. As for laying them down... never heard of that technique.
