Thomas Hobson, to whom this expression refers, was a carrier at Cambridge in the early 17th century, who would not allow his clients their own choice of horse from his stables as he insisted on hiring them out in strict rotation. They were offered the choice of the horse nearest the door or none at all.
Hobson's choice is also mid 20th-century British rhyming slang for voice.
