I think it's something to do with being bareback. Horses are fine the first time you try something but what if he decided to test you and you didn't pass so he decided to keep bucking, etc?

Or it could be something not relating to his back.. but another area of his body.

I've ridden out his bucks every time he's done it, I haven't let him get away with it. I see what you're saying though.
And do you think letting him have a break for a few days would be good?

He might need to feel the sting of a riding crop. Often that's all it takes. Sometimes just carrying one is enough.

It could be helpful or it may not be. It all depends on what is causing the bucking. Do you have an instructor or trainer that could try to ride the canter?

I do not, however I can still ride the canter, I'd just like to know why he does it.

If he does it with someone more experienced, then it is probably likely to be a pain issue.
