Hold Your Horses!!

Happy Friday!!

This weeks fun phrase is ” Hold your horses.”

Meaning: Take it easy; keep calm; don’t do anything rash.

History: It is what one would have to do with horses when they began to get nervous or excited; by 1844 it had been extended to people, as in the New Orleans Picayune: “Oh, hold your horses, Squire. There’s no use gettin riled, no how.”
