As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Fortiflex Flatback Bucket is rated 4.964285714285714 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very heavy duty Very heavy duty bucket. Its shorter then the other buckets I've used in the past, but it is much wider then them. The metal handle is super strong, and the plastic seems very durable. I am sure this bucket will last long as my horse's water bucket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical Item Have used these buckets forever. They last well. Only got a new one because I ran over one of my show buckets with my trailer. Recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mfg in Oklahoma, USA I bought two new buckets as replacements for some that were very old-probably over 20 years of use. They are safe and easy to clean and carry when nearly full of water. Color choices are nice for leaving horse sitter instructions, like "grain in green bucket and water in blue bucket." Once I came home to find grain poured into the water bucket-oops-horse was a little upset about the missed feeding and it was a messy waste of feed! Comes with detailed instructions, 5 year warranty against defects. Has a horse head etching on the outside, gallon/liter markings on inside. One tip-if your horse is a bucket-banging enthusiatic eater, a flexible black rubber bucket is more quiet, but not so easy to clean as hard plastic. Label says construction is a blend of EDPM Rubber and HDPE. EDPM Rubber is a synthetic rubber compatible with hot and cold water. HDPE is a Number 2 plastic, which is supposed to be safe for food/water use. Some horses prefer to drink from metal buckets, probably for the same reason people don't like the taste of water from a garden hose. There is a lot of concern about the safety of drinking from certain plastics. (Numbers 1,2 4, and 5 are considered safer than 3,6, and 7. The brochure that comes with the bucket states that it may be used for watering and feeding around the farm. Flatback Model FB-120 holds 5 gallons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buckets in cold weather I bought these for times when I can't use heated buckets-like for the barn Labs who chew anything-they are holding up well and the ice seems to slide out. Now I don't have to cart buckets back to the house to thaw which is really nice for me. I would buy these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these! I love the flatback buckets so much better then regular buckets. I highly suggest these buckets! They are very durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our stabling staple This is the only bucket we use in our barn. Buckets get dumped everyday and we have never had a problem with slime from these buckets. Even from the messiest drinker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best deal with flat rate shipping! The buckets are great, but the best deal is the flat rate shipping. You can never have enough buckets and I needed some to store in my trailer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Since water is the most important nutrient... You can never have too many water buckets! I keep two in my horse's stall at all times, and two in the trailer for shows and clinics. With the risk of infectious diseases, I never let my horse drink anywhere but from his own bucket. And these buckets are durable, standing up to bites, bangs and kicks without developing unsafe cracks or breaking apart.
