If he's barely even 'halter broke', frightened to be caught and yet she rides him, then I'd say there's also the reason he bucks 'randomly'!
Not exactly sure now what you want to ask for advice for, if you say nothing will be done about it. But to motivate the owner, it may be worth reminding her that it's negligent to keep an animal & not attend to it's health with regular hoofcare, worming, teeth... Not to mention asking her why on earth is she keeping the horse if she's so concerned about lack of funds & can't do anything with him anyway.
