Both types of martingales require a rubber donut, like the one in the red circle in the photo above. This keeps the martingale from sliding around and becoming looser. Below we will take a closer look at both different types of martingales.
It is flexible because the martingale attaches to the reins of the bridle with rings that allow it to slide around. This is also why the rubber stoppers seen in the picture above are mandatory. You don't want the ring of your martingale to somehow slide up to the bit and get caught.
