      Comments about Dura-Tech Balance Training System Complete Set:

      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.

      Comments about Dura-Tech Balance Training System Complete Set:

      Great product. Nylon makes it affordable for everyone. Nylon is easy care. I laminated the instructions to improve their survival in the barn. Surcingle fit the old fat horses who were getting a review of their skills and fit the cob sized youth who was new to balance & collection. If I were to suggest adding more wither grips on surcingle saddle to prevent it shifting. Skinny young horse needed crouper and breast collar to keep surcingle in place Maybe her withers were too prominent. Great product.
