A horsey Houdini who's been leading her stable pals astray is making headlines in the US.

Mariska, a Friesian, has been caught on tape breaking out of her stall, before going on a door-opening rampage around the stables. At one stage she even breaks into the feed room for a little snack.

The video was posted online by her owners and has become a viral hit, gathering hundreds of thousands of views already.

The Huffington Post reported that the Misty Meadows Farm blog insisted the mare was not taught to open stable doors.

"We most certainly did not [train her]," wrote Sandy Bonem, one of the farm's owners.

"It makes life such a challenge for us. Especially as we have only to forget just one of the back up latches or chains and she finds the weak link."
