Simple! INSTINCT. Not of the man, but of the horse. When a horse is used to a rider, it anticipates the rider's response in ANY situation (including being headless). Those who have animal friends will tell you that there is a bond between them and their "friends" that go beyond mere words.
This can't be a serious question but I will humor you, it is only those that think their biological ocular viewing portals are the only method of sight in this world or any other who have a problem understanding the sight and capabilities of a demon.
The 'Galloping Hessian' one of my personal favs. This one is easy, he is truly a ghost, and ghosts can do most everything include walk through walls. It is therefore a ghostly spirit one that is quite capable of seeing and needs no head.
As Uninvited Writer mentioned, The Headless Horseman still had his head with him.
Also, the Horseman was driven to perform tasks/murders etc, so we could argue that he has a drive that possesses his entire being that brings him to the source of his task. Much like a hunger drive?
He takes a risk in life and allows nature to guide him.
