  • possible alternative origin: When a horse is reluctant to enter the starting gate before a race the assistant starters will position themselves on each side of the horse's haunches. They each extend an arm and grasp the others wrist. With their hands thus "locked" behind the horse's rump they pull/push the horse and "load" him into the starting gate.
