    Dear teachers,
    If someone hit their straps, it means what they do?

    It appears to have come from Australia.

    When a team of horses is harnessed, the harness is often slack before the animals start to pull. When they are working as a team, the leather straps in the harness snap tight, and it shows that the animals are pulling strongly.

    It means that one is now working hard.
