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'!).

These Pails are the perfect space saver for farm and home use. Exceptionally lightweight pails, under 1 lb. Features a low wide shape with an extra wide top. 8 quarts.

Made in the USA

    Fortiflex Pails is rated 4.8689 out of 5 by 61.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This size is just right for bathing horses (I have one for that) but I bought this one for collecting water (cold water before it warms up) in the shower to water the outdoor plants since we are in a drought and have to reduce water consumption.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bucket! This is a well made bucket that can take a beating. I also love the color choices. Works great for taking grain out to horses in the pasture so you don't have to haul around several big buckets. These stack nicely making mulitple rations easy and efficient to feed. Great job Fortiflex!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bucket evar! My 10 year old Fortiflex bucket finally developed a crack in the bottom after 10 years on the high Caribbean seas. I could have fixed it but decided to order a couple new ones from SmartPak. Cost me over 25 bucks to get them to Central America but they're worth every penny. That's just how good they are.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Colors! I am a riding instructor with several school horses. Each horse has it's own "color". The buckets help keep everything color organized. Grooming buckets, feed buckets, bathing etc. The small size is so convenient.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the perfect size I use these for mixing feed, and what I call buckets baths. They hold just the right amount of liquid to not make them terribly heavy to carry. They last but of course you need to buy new ones and I did.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to clean, hard to break. Whats not to like? Very versatile, I use them to make grain in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Perfect little red bucket. This will be perfect for my mini horse to use for bath time and stowing her grooming supplies. Would also work for grain as well. Would use a bigger size for a water bucket.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bucket This bucket is great!! It's a little small in amount but its really wide which is great for ponies who have very large faces! Lol
    Date published: 2013-04-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right size Perfect size for when I want to mix a bran mash or if I want to add more water to the water buckets and not have to lug the heavier bucket around. My horse can also be fed out of this bucket. Seams sturdy enough. Very happy with this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Grain Buckets! I use my Fortiflex pails every single day, twice a day! I've had them for about 5 years now (ever since we've had our horses at home), and we have used them 2 times a day every day as our grain buckets for morning & evening feedings. Our horses love these, since they mean that breakfast or dinner is coming! They've held up just great, and I'm guessing that I'll have the same grain buckets for many years to come.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from always need more I am not sure how I can always use more buckets but when ever they go on sale I get them for myself or fill them with treats for friends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fortiflex Pails!!! We have several of these pails around for a variety of tasks. Have several designated for soaking beet pulp, bathing, etc. They are a great buy on SmartPak, especially with free shipping - even to Alaska!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Multi Purpose Bucket These little buckets are great! I purchased two of these, one for my leather cleaning supplies and the other for my bathing supplies. They are the perfect size for both activities and fit easily in my tack trunk. Great value, very durable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buckets This bucket is proving to be durable and the perfect size for carrying grain, grooming supplies and miscellaneous bits and pieces. Also love all the color choices.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most bucket for your $buck$ You can never have too many of these handy-sized durable buckets! I use them to soak my grain daily, always have one in my trailer for water for my horse and they're short-sided enough for my dog to drink out of too! Great for bathing and pretty much any barn chore. I recently purchased a few new ones because the one I had finally cracked and broke. I started thinking about it...I bought that little blue bucket when I got my first horse 14 YEARS ago! HOW OFTEN CAN YOU PURCHASE SOMETHING UNDER $5 AND USE IT FOR 14 YEARS!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very durable! Literally the day I received it my oh so amazing warmblood kicked it around the pasture for 5 minutes until I could take it away from him. It came back in one piece. So definitely a wonderful purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from super handy Great little buckets with a thousand uses! Very durable, high quality, sturdy handle, and the colors never fade. I've had these buckets last for more than 10 years!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pails I've had several of these buckets, only had to buy a new one because my old one ran away. This is the perfect size to use for bathing, holding brushes, soaking beet pulp, feeding small meals, etc. They are super durable - the only thing is rarely if left in with a horse, they can lose their handles. I've only ever seen it happen a few times, but it is possible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pails Sturdy, easy to clean, bought 4 in hunter green (our stable's color) and they've been working as food pails since. I like these as food prep pails much better than those hefty, rubbery ones that hold on to all the supplements. Great purchase, will buy more of the same in the future if need be :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little pail I use these pails for mixing up supplements for my guys. Perfect size for that and great value! They last forever and the only reason I have to keep buying new ones is someone keeps stealing mine where I board!
