Idioms Part 7 (Animals - Horses) Interactive Game

Webster's New World American Idioms HandbookHere's part 7 of this series on idioms. This time, the meanings are given, and you have to match the idioms to them. As I've mentioned several times before, the clue box allows a maximum of 34 characters (I think), so I have to adapt to this restriction one way or another. For this game, however, I decided to let the idioms simply truncate, so it's only fair to show you the full idioms first:

Beat/Flog a dead horse
Change horses in midstream
Wild horses couldn't/wouldn't drag someone somewhere or Wild horses couldn't/wouldn't  make someone do something
If wishes were horses then beggars would ride
If two ride on a horse, one must ride behind
To look a gift horse in the mouth
