  2. Stop nagging
  3. Don’t look the gift horse in the mouth
  4. Drop the dead donkey
  5. You can take a horse to water but you cannot make it drink
  6. Horse sense
  7. Stubborn as a mule
  8. Shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted
  9. A bit of a Trojan horse
  10. I’ll have a horse’s neck
  11. Driving a coach and horses through it
  12. Putting the cart before the horse
  13. Stop horsing about
  14. It’s a mare’s nest
  15. Gone to the knacker’s yard
  16. Shank’s pony
  17. He’s a non starter
  18. Bit between the teeth
