Overall Good Product
I bought this to work on my 20 year old gelding's topline. It works as it should. You need to play with length of the side pulls to get it where you want it. I've used this on 6 of my horses so far ranging in size from 14 hh to 16 hh. It wouldn't fit a horse much larger than 16hh.

Product description does not mention that it is COB size.
Great workmanship and quality. I love everything about this product. I just wish it was made in standard horse size. My 3 year old is 16 hands and girth lacks 2 full inches to even touching the end of the buckle. My gelding has a relatively small head and the headstall is on the last buckle of each adjustment and it still rides right on the sides of his eyes. No way to attach a lunge line to it without the straps sliding directly over his eyes. I wish I had read the reviews of others who commented that it was too small before I ordered. I MIGHT be able to use it for yearlings...

Too small!!!!
This item is way too small. It won't even fit our smallest horse under 16 hands. There are also no instructions that come with it. I'm returning it unfortunately.

Good but small
This is an ok product, It does run small so if you have a TB or a warmblood maybe don't buy it or don't be surprised if the head piece doesn't fit your horse. I do like it and didn't find the setup confusing.

GREAT! BUT. Horrible Directions
The first time you try to use this your going to hate it and feel suckered (if you don't know how to work or assemble one). The directions show three different ways to school and point out what is what; they also warn people not push to hard or work to long because it could hurt the horse (I already knew this but its great for someone who is aware it can be harmful if used wrong!). I have only used my 3-4 times and I have already seen major improvement. This product does as it is intended, the quality is not imported Itallian leather but is very nice for its price, and when assembled correctly it is a fast tack up and untack. I enjoy this product, I reccomend it. I will be making a YouTube video featuring this product on how to assemble and other things sometime this next week ( sub to me I am galloping dreamers). Overall great product.

I really like this product
I have had mine for about 15 yrs and it was a little confusing how to use it, except it wasn't that hard to figure out. I don't use the head set it is to bulky for me I use just a regular bridle with a snaffle bit and hook it to that much easier, also you can run your lunge line through the bit to the other side so you use the pole also. I love it..

Difficult to use first time!
I was disappointed to open the box and find NO instructions! It made the product very difficult to use. I'm still not sure I'm using it properly!

Video on how to set this up!!
It does not come with very good instructions as we all know!, BUT i t is the closest knock off to the pessoa and if you YOUTUBE "balance system lunge" you get a few videos on how to set it all up!!GREAT PRODUCT! gave a topline to my scrawny TB.

Disappointed
The instructions that come with this system are by far the worst instructions I have ever seen. The photos are so poor how anyone is suppose to figure this system out is beyond me. When spending this kind of money I want a product that isn't difficult and confusing to use. I thought I was getting what was in the photo and what actually arrived looked much different. It isn't a horrible product but the directions are horrible.

training system
overall, i think this is a wonderful product. my horse is responding very well to it and it seems to serve it's intended purpose. i would overall highly recomend this system. however... i have a 16.3 thoroughbred and the caveson is slightly too small. even if it weren't too small the instructions in no way, shape, or form describe how to hook up the lunge line, etc. to the caveson. i figured out the rest of the device well enough from the directions, but when i called to inquire about the caveson part i was told to "hire a trainer if i couldn't figure it out." i can understand you can't get all your horse knowledge from a brochure or over the phone, but i would expect when you purchase a product they can dole out the complete instructions for its use. overall still a worthwhile and very good product but don't expect help if you need it to use it.

As I get older I am not able to spend as much time in the saddle. It's easier on me doing the ground work before riding in the arena.

This is one of the best training systems out there! It has helped with my horse's headset - he is much more relaxed after training with this system.

Like the duriblity of the system
Sotaira m on Mar 24, 2014
Re-starting my 2 OTTB mares and have heard wonders about the Pessoa, this is the most similar yet less expensive. Hoping to get them both moving on the bit, engaging their hind end, and building up a topline.
Alice C on Mar 12, 2014
My new mare needs to work on her topline and begin to be more around while being on the bite. I hope this product will help me to lunge her consistently with the help of much needed collection.

Good training tool for young horse

what is the difference between the mustang balance training system and Fabtron Deluxe Balance Training System?

BEST ANSWER: Please review the product summary's. The Fabtron system includes more items than the Mustang system, they are also two different manufacturers.
Will this fit a 16 hand horse?
A shopper on Sep 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Well, yes and no. I purchased this recently for my 16.3 boy and everything fits except for the cavesson. I was a bit disappointed as I need to purchase a new cavesson instead of using the one that came with it. The bit hanger is fine, but even punching holes at the very ends of the straps won't work for my horse. Hope that helps.
I am thinking about getting this to use on my Arabian gelding who stands about 13.3h - 14h. He is very small chested, and my coming 2 year old appendix stud who stands about 14.2h - 14.3h. He is getting very stocky in the chest. Would this be a comfortable fit for the both of them?
Tabitha P on Mar 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can adjust it to fit most horses. We use it on everything from my 14.2 h paint to a couple of thoroughbreds that range between 15.2 and 16+. My mare is very narrow and the TB mare is thicker with a much rounder barrel. I love this as an aid to develope correct muscles and self carriage
does the surcingle have d rings on the belly side?
stacey k on Aug 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there are three circle rings across the belly.
Is this a good tool to use for a horse that needs work on forming a solid topline as well as helping with balance? Would you also say that a 15.3 hand TBxQH mare would fit in it as she has a very large chest using about a 52" girth with an All-Purpose english or close contact saddle?
Amber on Jan 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I purchased the system in the spring of 2013. I have used this on my quarter horses who also are large bodied and it fit without any issues on them. I have also used this on Saddlebreds starting out training, it's not as intrusive or strict and has more give than other systems I have used. It's a good starting system to use for warming a horse up and working on collection, balance, and proper frame. The strap around the hind quarters takes some getting used to for the horses.
Do you think this would fit my 17 hh tb? He's a hunter and I use a 54" girth. He does not have a large head.
Laura S on Sep 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have large horses also, and found this set to be too tight for them. I ended up adding extra snaps to lengthen the lines . It's made well but I would not recommend it for tall or large type horses.
Is there a pony size in the Fabtron Deluxe Balance training system? Something that would fit a Welsh mountain pony that's about 11.1hh?
Cheryl P on Mar 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My horse is a national show horse so he has a smaller Arabian like head I ordered reg size and it was way to snug for him So it runs way small.
Can anyone let me know how adjustable in size range this product is. I have several youngsters that are alil on the smaller side while growing as well as many 17hh WBs. Will this system be large enough or adjust enough for them? :)

BEST ANSWER: Fabtron Deluxe Balance Training System:
Bit end swivel snaps both 116" and 46" adjustable elastic lines
Standard horse size 34" surcingle
Adjustable Deluxe Surcingle 68"-84"
Adjustable Deluxe Nylon Lunge Caveson 1" with Deluxe 5/8" Nylon Bit Hanger

Mustang Balance Training System: Highly adjustable to fit most average-sized horses. Not recommended for ponies or extra large horses.
does this balance system come all put together or do you have to assemble the whole thing?
ann m on Sep 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It comes out together if I remember correctly. There are a few snaps that will have to be hooked to the right place but it was really easy to figure out, and it comes with directions.
