'stable men' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both people as well as being plural nouns.
Perhaps you can see a link between them that I don't see?

'let ross get upset' is the wordplay.
'get upset' indicates an anagram (I've seen 'getting upset' mean this).
'let'+'ross'='letross'
'letross' is an anagram of 'OSTLERS'.

Can you help me to learn more?
