Could he just be young ?

So I have been talking about my gelding bucking at a canter and many people said its the saddle or his back or other things . I'm wondering if it is because he is young ? I girl at the barn I am at is having the same trouble with her three year old fully bucking . Could it be that he just is high spirited and learning what he can get away with ? Like a child exploring boundaries ?

What is a good bit that is light and he will respond too ?
