cherumbque picture will help us shed some light on your problem.
I think you might be refering to the back band and the tugs which probley
Are more to the cart end than the tip of the shafts.
aproxamatley 1 1 1/2 foot back from the shaft tips.
Put your pony to and check and see were the cart and the tugs come so that will give you an idear to solve the problem.
So that could be the cause why the cart tips and is ot of balance.
If its the tugs have a small steel bar about 2-3 inches long it would stop them slideing back thay would act as tug stops also check
Were your breeching d (ring) is as well.
So you can get the correct position were it should be fitted.
