Don't.  Put the whole procedure into one script.  In the first step, do 
the validation, if it's bad, tell the people so and exit.  If it's okay, 
continue the processing.

This will make things easier to control and work reliably.  Forwarding
post information can lead to a variety of difficulties such as strange
behavior when people hit the back button, odd timeouts, let alone, people 
could play games and go directly to process.php without doing the 
validation step... among other things.
