Idiom : ‎”BACK IN THE SADDLE”

Back in the saddle” is a great idiom meaning to resume again.

It probably originates from the old ”cowboy days” when you were likely to be thrown off a horse.

Marta reminded me that you may have heard it already in Shakira’s song ”Waka Waka, This time for Africa”

I’ll give you an example:
”My brother split with his girlfriend only 2 weeks ago, and he’s already ”back in the saddle”- he’s got a date with a new girl toni

ght!”

”My sister injured her knee 2 months ago while playing tennis. She’s endured quite a lot of physical therapy. Now she’s ”back in the saddle” and feeling fantastic. She has a match next week- and I’m sure she’ll win!”

All the best,  Cindy
