GERMANY -- Norwegian Ayla Kirstine has an Instagram account where she regularly posts videos of herself cantering around fields and even leaping over hurdles as if she were a horse.
Why? Nobody’s quite sure.
All we know about equestrian pedestrian Ayla is that she’s quite an anxious individual – she once had a major panic about skin cancer after spotting a mole – and doesn’t post any explanation about her unusual hobby alongside her videos.
She’s been doing it for a while, although she recently deleted her old Instagram account before returning to the platform a few weeks ago.
Since then, one of her equine displays went wild on German Twitter, and from that her fame has spread to the UK.
Ayla told Daily Star online how she got started: "I started when I was 4 years old. I loved dogs and I wanted ot be a dog myself."
From there, things developed into her current unique pastime.
She says she tries not to pay attention to the stares of passers-by: "There are quite a few who find it strange, I try not to think about it and just do what I like."
