Question Hay que desencillar (desensillar) hasta que aclare

I think that Peron (of Argentine politics) said this, but I can't figure out what it means. Help!! (Hopefully, Oooooookami will stumble upon this question......) I can't find "desencillar", but I CAN find "desensillar" - which I think means something about unsaddling a horse. ???? Thanks!

Quizás eso puede ayudarte, la palabra es desensillar (sillar chair)

Hay que desensillar hasta que aclare.. una frase campestre que implica que en momento de turbulencias, es mejor parar, y esperar que se aclare el panorama

no sé , pero pienso que significa,

Take a step back to look at the whole sitution
(Get off your horse to view the entire battlefield)


Literalmente
One should get off their horse until it becomes clear

¡Muy bien Bob! It also means "to unsaddle"

@Lou Ann

En Chile we use de term "desencillar" to mean to get rid of the change you have on.

Sencillo, besides meaning single it also means change (loose coins)

You know, I don't even understand this in English. (Sheesh, can you believe how thick I am!?) What does it mean "to get rid of the change you have on". Change like monedas? How do you have "change on"??

Get off the horse and wait for the dust to settle, before making changes.

Right, like "monedas sueltas" = loose coins. That's what we call sencillo, and I am sure in Argentina is the same. You are bounds to hear something like ¿tienes sencillo?
