OffbeatA Norwegian woman's videos have gone viral because of how good she is at running and jumping like a horse
Mother raised concerns about equestrian course before daughter's fatal ride, inquest told
Olivia Inglis, 17, and Caitlyn Fischer, 19, died weeks apart at elite equestrian competitions in 2016 after they were crushed by their horses.
As a child, you may have pretended to be a horse - but chances are you've got nothing on Ayla Kirstine.
Kirstine, from Norway, has amazed the internet with her equine skills after going viral on German Twitter. Not only does she canter with the exact same form as a horse, she even manages to jump cleanly over a wooden bench as if her body was made for it.
Kirstine has had a public account on Instagram for about three weeks, but her popularity has gained a lot of traction since Twitter user Cherno tweeted out one of her videos on Tuesday and dubbed her a "Pferdemädchen" (horse woman).

Ailsa Carr told an inquest she begged a volunteer to stop CPR because she knew her daughter had died.

"When I was four years old I loved dogs and wanted to be a dog myself," Kirstine told INSIDER. "So when I knew I liked horses I only used what I had learned."
When asked how she doesn't hurt her wrists, she said: "I don't really know, but I don't have any pain in my body."

But not everyone has been supportive of Kirstine's unusual hobby. Yesterday, Kirstine posted a black square on Instagram with a caption suggesting she's received some unkind comments.
'Dire': medic who responded to horse riding accident was 'struggling', inquest told
Olivia Inglis, 17, died after her horse hit a jump and fell on top of her at an event in the Hunter Valley in 2016.
"I wonder if i should delete my Instagram profile..." she wrote. "I do not know and do not intend to do it yet! So take it easy and calm down..."
She noted that comments should be in Norwegian or English or they would be deleted. In response, people expressed how much they loved her page, and begged her not to get rid of it.
"Do what you love!" wrote one person. "You're really good at running/jumping on all fours, it's impressive! I bet it's a great workout, too."
Another said: "You've got an amazing talent!"
Kirstine must have appreciated the positive feedback, because she uploaded a new video soon after thanking people for their comments.
"I'm so sensitive that I'm scared of absolutely everything!" she wrote. "Seriously, I thought I had got cancer in a mole just because I saw an advertisement that one could get cancer in the moles... There you have me..."

Horse Bodexpress runs entire Preakness without jockey
There was a bizarre sight for the entire Preakness Stakes on Saturday after horse Bodexpress went the entire length of the race without a jockey. The announcers covering the race for NBC noted immediately that one horse was racing without a jockey, creating an odd visual on the track: WE GOT A MAVERICK pic.twitter.com/F5PFaHXwx1 — Timothy Burke (@bubbaprog) May 18, 2019 Replays showed that Bodexpress, running out of the ninth slot, reared back at the start, dropping jockey John Velazquez. CROOKED AS HELL! pic.twitter.com/Y5AYhMYmgx — Timothy Burke (@bubbaprog) May 18, 2019 “He was just not behaving good in the gate,” Velazquez told NBC’s Kenny Rice after the race.
It appears Kirstine isn't the only person to get in touch with their inner horse. The account "" shows a woman who has been at it for six years.
