Origin of hobbyhorse
In Middle English one of the meanings of hobby was “small horse, pony” (obsolete except in dialect). By the early 19th century hobby acquired the sense “favorite occupation or amusement,” the current meaning of the word. This last sense of hobby was borrowed from the earlier hobbyhorse, which in the 16th century meant several things, e.g., a figure of a horse made of wicker worn in morris dances, pantomimes, and burlesques; a child’s toy consisting of horse’s head on the end of a stick or a rocking horse; a horse on a merry-go-round or a carousel. By the 17th century hobbyhorse developed the meaning “pet project, favorite pastime.” Hobbyhorse entered English in the 16th century.
