Horse walking on hind legs

Anyone have any idea how this person trained her horse to do this?

Not saying I want to do this, I just thought it was interesting. Horse doesn't look pissed to me. You can't MAKE a horse balance like that if he doesn't want to haha.

I don't know how they trained it, but that horse is really pissed off. That lady is either going to get pawed or bitten right in the face one of these days (she nearly did at several points in their little show).

His ears are PINNED flat back and he's striking.
Yeah seems totally happy to me, no big deal.

The horse definitely knows what it's suppose to be doing, but it's CLEARLY visible the horse is NOT happy about it.

I can tell at two points that the horse rears up and comes forward teeth bared and striking out before she cues him to, she just makes it look like she cued him by reacting fast.

You can tell that he understands what he's suppose to do while he's licking at the point where he's running around on the rail.

My mind/common sense (what little I have lol)/gut tells me that the only reason the horse can do that is because he's so aggressive towards his "handler". She's repeatedly hitting either his legs/chest/face with the whip and he's coming after her..on his hind legs because the whip is forcing him to stay up.

If the horse was trained superbly and wanted to do such a "trick", he would've came down and walked calmly out of the little arena..which he did not..his handler ran backwards not paying any attention to her surroundings other than the horse at multiple points of the video.

That is one incredibly angry horse.
If striking, pinned ears, snaking neck, snapping mouth and trying to bite multiple times isn't a pissed horse, then I'd better go back to reading Saddle Club books, as I don't have a CLUE about about horse body language :/

Looks like a wonderful way to get your head pawed in. This goes on my list of stupid people doing stupid things with horses..

Now that I look again, I see that the horse is pissed, but he doesn't seem to be striking out. He seems to be pissed at the whip and the person excessively using it, but not walking. Someone in the comments mentioned the owner may have taught him to 'shake' and used that to teach him to do that. I figured it was either that, or he was kicking to throw his balance back so he could stand easier.
