What does the phrase “from pillar to post” mean?
Running from pillar to post means to go from one thing to another without any definite purpose. It seems to be an allusion to manege, a dressage training regimen for horses. The pillar is the center of the riding area, and the posts are columns placed equidistantly around the ring.
