    Comments about Dura-Tech® Balance Training System - Complete Set:

    My horse got surgery for his kissing spines and I purchased this as part of his rehab. My horse is a 17 hand, very long OTTB and it fits him great! I decided to purchase this instead of the Pessoa system because it was less expensive. Super happy!

              Extremely well made. I have borrowed other brands and this one is so much more durable. The cables for the bit piece are a tad long but it is fixable.

              • Q:

                Will this fit ponies? I have also read that you can buy the parts separately. How do I do that? I don't need the cavesson, and the surcingle may be too big for my ponies

                  These pieces are only sold in this set. This may also be too large for ponies under 14.2.
