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'!).

The tried and true FortiFlex's Flat Back Buckets are a favorite among horse owners and horses alike!

Made with FORTALLOY rubber-polyethylene blend for exceptional strength and toughness even at low temperatures. The thick wall construction and heavy duty galvanized fittings ensure long lasting durability.

Features:

  • It won't wobble on the wall
  • Great for watering, feeding, maintenance and all-purpose use around your farm or home
  • Capacity markings in quarts, gallons and liters
  • Heavy duty bail and eyelet assembly with galvanized reinforcement
  • Fortalloy rubber-PE blend resists cracking
  • Super strong top flange with ribs for added strength
  • Resists collapsing from weight of liquids and the normal abuse by horses
  • Handy bottom handgrip for easier pouring of contents
  • Perimeter rim helps protect the bottom of the bucket from excessive scratching

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these buckets My gelding has two water buckets in his stall... one is a Fortiflex and the other is another brand. The Fortiflex bucket is the only one he drinks out of! Either his highness is offended by the color of the other bucket (it's pink) or he's just got good taste, but he'll be getting another Fortiflex bucket soon to replace the other.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For a bucket, its pretty nice I bought the blue bucket so that I could check each day to be sure it was getting scrubbed - the light color allows me to do this easily. It lays well against the stall wall, and does the job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Price It is less expensive than other brands of the same kind but just as good of quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product I had bought some "better buckets" but they do not work for hauling water. They are good for just hanging in the barn though. These are way better for packing water.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fortiflex Flatback Bucket Excellent quality; durable. Although I have a water tank in the paddock I like having a bucket with water in the stalls too. (My horses have open access to paddock and stall) The 5 gallon size is just right.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these buckets I love these buckets. I have used them for years for all of my horses. They are sturdy and so easy to clean. The variety of colors available is just a bonus! For water, feed, toting stuff around, bathing time....they are multi-functional. Will definitely buy them again when the time comes.

    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.
