        Comments about Dura-Tech(R) Balance Training Systems:

        This is a wonderful product. It works extremely well. This system helps lay wonderful groundwork for any tyoe of riding and training and helps build the muscles and balance the horse needs. I would suggest getting this only if you have a larger horse (my horse is a 1300 pound 15.2 quarter horse and i had to adjust the harness a good bit smaller) as you may have trouble or a lot of hanging bungees if you use this on a smaller horse. The only downfall to this product is there are no directions, only pictures. I have used harnesses and training tools before so this didn't take me long to set up on my horse, but for someone less experienced this would be quite a task for them to figure out. Other than that I have only positive things to say about the training system and its price. I would highly suggest this to anyone and everyone who rides.

        Great overall product. Made for bigger horses so it takes forever to get it fit correctly on a smaller horse. Works well. Worth the money.
