By sheer force of will

I found this video while noodling around looking at dressage clips on YouTube. The rider explains that this is this young mare's first show, and she was a problem rearer in the past, so the reaction to the rear was aimed at keeping them both from going over backwards. I believe the young lady actually defies the laws of physics by not falling off. And I love how she regroups and finishes the test.
