"To hold your horses"

Dad: Come on kids!  Let's go!  We're going to be late.
Kid: Dad, hold your horses.

Let's go!  I don't want to miss the beginning of the movie.
Tom: Hold your horses!  I'm coming.

"To hold your horses" is used when you tell someone to "wait" or "hold on."  People usually say "hold your horses" when they feel like the other person is being a little impatient or too much in a hurry.
