horse does good when lunged but bucks when ridden

I've been working with this horse for about 4 weeks now every other day I know that is hardly anything but she does great when I lunge her and she responds when I ask to walk trot and canter but when someone rides her its like she goes crazy and I'm thinking maybe she just needs someone to trust because no one rides her or comes to see her. I'm pretty much the only one who pays attention to her. She's never bucked on the lunge line and she has only taken off once but something scared her and I said whoa and she calmed down. I have not ridden her yet but I want to ride her after I work with her a little longer. She does not buck with her real owner who never comes to see her so I don't know what causes her to buck when someone is on her back.

Maybe she has a sore back

Sore back, poor saddle fit, sack of potatoes rider. It could be any or all of those things.

When you say that she does not buck with her owner, do you mean when the owner rides her?

Pinchy cinch, sore back, poor saddle fit, dislikes the pad. My trainers mare prefers a particular cinch or can be a nasty bucker, her gelding also prefers a certain cinch/ pad.
Are you lunging her under saddle?

She doesn't buck when the owner rides her... and yes I have been lunging her with her bridle and saddle on

Please be careful lunging with a saddle. As the horse moves and the saddle flops it can cause a very sore back.

If the saddle flops that much, it doesn't fit. I've lunged many a times with a saddle without an issue.

Yes I know but a lot of times people don't pay attention to that and they just say "well there isn't the weight from the rider" and they just look past it.
