Spat its dummy out - generally heard this being used to describe a horse or pony thats not listening to its rider and protests heavily, usually by bucking or mini rears etc
Trotting rules okay!

'lack.of.snack.itus' - grumpy hacking horse because they cant snack
hackage - pronounced like 'dressage' - means hack

Coming at it from the other direction, "feeling his oats" and "full of beans" are both well known, but people might not know they have horsey origins.

A lot of riding school horses have 'numb sides'
I like a young horse with a 'good pop'
He gets 'a bit footy' on hard ground
He 'stood off' the fence.
Looks like he 'threw a shoe'
Put a martingale on him to stop him 'stargazing'
He 'pigrooted' or 'crow hopped' halfway across the dressage arena
'rides like a plank,' has no bend at all
'Show him the stick'
'Tanked off' across the field.

Does anyone else "Go for Tats?" meaning go out for a hack? Not sure if it's just on our yard that that's used!
