How do I handle it?

I don't worry IF its going to happen, I worry WHEN it happens.
And usually by then I've a) stayed on or b) come off.

the reason it works is because of how the rope goes through the top rings on a halter or between the ropes of a rope halter, or (like I do) through the rings on a barcoo bridle. If it wasnt for that the horse could still get his head down, he'd just have to tuck his chin in to do it.

run a sturdy dog collar or piece of rope through the gap between the seat and the pommel

Yes they could still get their head down to buck with the reins. I just do it to keep them from putting it down to eat. I don't seem to have the problem of sitting thru a buck. It's the darting that usually gets me, lol.
