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 Round Feeder Tub is rated 4.8125 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I love this bucket! I have them installed in every stall. They are easy to install and have held up well. One of them just broke after a year of use because that horse likes to lean all her body weight on it and rub her tail. I don't think any other bucket would have lasted longer under that kind of abuse! The rest are good as new. I like the large size, can fit a lot of feed in it and the horses are easily able to get every last morsel of grain out. Plus they can't push grain out onto the stall floor so there's less waste. I'm about to order another one for the mare that just broke hers :-)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good feed tub Wide opening makes it nice for my horse to eat even if someone forgets to take her cribbing muzzle off!  Easy to clean and install too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good old reliable big enough for the enthusiastic eater to leave most of the grain in the bucket, esp with the guard on top. Stands up to years of abuse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even Comes w Snaps Absolutely love this deep bucket. Perfect for mashes. I was pleasantly surprised to receive this feedtub within days of ordering it and when I pulled it out of the box it was already complete with snaps. You can't ask for any more than that!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Feed Tub These feed tubs come with hooks and snaps, so they are ready to hang. They also are deep and a good shape so the horses don't fling the food out. Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feeder Love this deep bucket for feeding - no corners to trap the crumbs/supplments. Horses are less impatient and calmer while eating. They each have this feeder in their stalls as well as one for shows. Also very easy to clean- just wipe out with a damp sponge.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feeder This feeder allows my warmbloods to eat their feed without having to squeeze into the corners of triangle shaped feeders. They also spill less on the ground. Also easy to clean - no corners to trap goop. Also can clip out and take to shows.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The standard of hanging feed tubs. Just wish they had a brush on the front edge so my equines could rub and scratch with satisfaction!! LOL

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great feed tub My 2 yr old gelding is a pain at feeding time. He absolutely LOVES to sling his feed. After literally trying every other kind of bucket and pan, I decided to give this one a try. It's deep enough that he can't just swing his head and fling the food, nor can he tip it sideways or otherwise "dump" the bucket. But the fact that he can rattle it around and make noise absolutely delights him, and I now know for sure he's not losing his food in the stall. 2 thumbs up!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feed bucket nice and big, I have a large draft horse ( big head) and he needs the width. Sturdy, easy to hook and un hook for cleaning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally the Perfect Feeder for My Horse Excellent feeder for my horse. She drops grain all the time when she has a regular bucket feeder. She is now 22 years old and this is the first new bucket she has had since she was 6 years old. I could never find the right bucket at the right price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase The feed tub came quickly and with all the hardware included. An easy, great purchase.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from "S" hooks and horse nostrils! I purchased 2 of the black tubs. They are a great size and plenty deep. However, the "S" hooks were an unpleasant surprise. I had to use a large hammer to pound them open and closed. Then used duct tape to cover up the sharp edges. "S" hooks and horse nostrils are not a good combination. Had I realized that this was the type of hard wear fastener on them I would not have bought them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Feed Tub i purchased these tubs to replace all the old feed tubs in our barn - they are a great value - deep enough that the horses don't knock the grain out.They cost about $5 less from SmartPak than at the local tack shop.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite feeder I like these because they are large and deep. My horses have plenty of space to eat, and they are less likely to spill or lose pieces because the feeder is so large! It hangs up easily and comes down easily for cleaning. Also, our feed is dropped down a long tube from a loft above the horses, and this feeder helps prevent feed from bounching out from the force as it comes down the tube. Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy, sturdy to use The last buckets I had like this lasted for 10 years! I have them attached to the corner wall with 3 eyebolts. I feed beet pulp to some of my horses and this makes it so easy to unsnap and rinse out the bucket. I love these, but I wish the black one came with snaps and not S hooks......I had to "settle" for green.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the feed tubs I have been using these feed tubs for many years now and they are the best! The large round opening is deep, the bucket is very durable and it's easy to snap off and clean.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Round Feeder Tub! Received the tubs right before the Atlanta Summer Show AA. They worked great especially considering they came with the clips attached, and it was easy to put them in their stalls with a few pieces of baling twine. They are quite a bit cheaper than the Dan's buckets, and somewhat larger and deeper, but our horses loved eating out of them. We now plan to put them in their stalls at home.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from NICE LARGE OPENING FEED TUB The place where I board had such a small corner feeder, my quarter mare had rubbed off her forelock to a small nubbin, and just before the show season is about to start! I couldn't find this type of copious tub anywhere locally, so I was glad to be able to obtain it on-line. I am happy to report her head fits into this tub with room to spare and her forelock is starting to grow back in. Hurray!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! My horse would always bang a hanging bucket, sling his feed out of a corner feeder, and flip over a ground feeder. This feed tub is deep and wide enough that any "flinging" of the feed he wants to do just pushes it to the other side of the bottom of the tub. Yay! No more wasted feed!
