Needs a monkey wearing a cowboy hat to complete the illusion.

I couldn’t really get a scale as to relative speed, but that seems almost like a low-grade super power. Admirable dedication and coordination, in any case. Very cool.

I cringed every time she landed on the heels of her palms after a jump. I’ll bet she has far too many sprained wrists wrapped up in learning this ability.

Yes, this Norwegian developed this skill. Others do it as a matter of heredity.

She’ll come to know true equine hell when some rider tries to saddle her up and make her carry them several miles.

I was impressed by her horse-style jumping, including the foreleg tuck. By doing this she may understand horse gaits better than most riders (but I don’t know if her gaits are actually accurate or not…)
