So the last 3 times I've ridden Jackie she's started bucking at the canter, as in the she's happy kinda way. She takes about 5/6 strides and then starts, it is the excited type of bucking, not the get off my back type. It's not too big of a issue, but I did fall off her her tonight when I was cantering her bareback. Its respective ones, I stayed on for the first 4, and fell off on the 5th. It's with the saddle, and without so it's not tack, and she wants to go, isn't in any pain. So anything helpful?

If the saddle is making her back sore she will still be sore when you ride her bareback.

Just because the saddle wasn't on her doesn't mean she's not in pain due to the damage caused by an ill-fitting saddle.
In no way does wanting to go forward definitely rule out pain. If a horse suddenly started bucking for no apparent reason, pain would be my first thought.
However, if there is a plausible reason (she's normally ridden 5 days a week but had had the last 3 days off, the sudden weather changes, etc), try to keep things normal and see if the behavior continues. If she's back in regular work, the weather stabilizes, or whatever was different is back to normal, and she's fine again, don't worry about it. If the bucking continues, look for a physical problem--tack, hocks, back, ulcers, etc.

I'd check to make sure she's not in pain or anything before you call it a training issue. If pain's not the cause, maybe try lunging her before you ride and see if that helps.

I would also suggest ruling out pain first, and then if that definitely not an issue then possibly lunge her before you ride and turn her out more
