Horse Lingo Question

What does it mean when some one says:

"I had to put her little marble back in her little socket."

When referring to riding a horse. One that maybe hasn't been ridden in a while.

Thanks for your answers.

Never heard of that either...?

I know she is stubborn and needs a little work out, but the man said he needed to do that then she settled down and accepted a rider. I was wondering if it meant he had to work her some, because she was being stubborn, etc. (?)

Thanks for the replies.

I've never heard that either.

Maybe when he said marbles and meant like mind. You know how we say "oh that person is losing his marbles", maybe it's something similar to that, but I honestly have no idea

Let us know what it is if/when you find out!
Its either really funny or really wrong!
I haven't a clue!

I will let you know.
I don't think it was wrong, he wouldn't hurt the horse.
He does natural horsemanship.

It's a Morgan so maybe it had something to do with the gait?

I don't know the man personally, he hangs around our co-op every Saturday morning. Next time I see him I will ask.

I didn't figure he meant hurting the horse. ..I was just laughing to/at myself for the way my mind thinks...

"I had to put her little marble back in her little socket."
To me it just sounds like he's meaning putting her back in her place, not nessicarily in a mean way tho. Like maby the horse had a tantrum and he just sorted her out....her playing up being the marble escapeing, lol and him dealing with her as in putting it back again. That's how I interprut it any way.
