: : I can only remember the second half of this phrase, and I'm trying to find out the beginning as well as its origin. The portion I remember is "and the horse you rode in on", and I know that its general sentiment is not very friendly.

You remember the second half, because that's the way it's generally used, in a humorous context. The first part, you see, is a very rude "f. you" with a pause, and then "and the horse you rode in on."
