Which sentence sounds more idiomatic:

  • She is always riding on her high horse.
  • She always rides on her high horse.

    Neither. Someone is just on their high horse, or more commonly being told "Get off your high horse", not riding on it. – stangdon Jun 28 '16 at 11:03
  • So what if I remove "riding" from the sentences above? Then which sentence would sound more idiomatic? – A-friend Jun 28 '16 at 11:08

    Do you mean "She's always on her high horse"? That sounds more idiomatic. You can see a large number of ways people use the idiom here. – stangdon Jun 28 '16 at 11:16
