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'!).

Why We Love This

With a capacity of 5 gallons (20 quarts), the Heated Flatback Bucket is great for horses and large dogs!

Favorite Features

  • Built-in thermostat and will keep water ice-free during below zero conditions
  • Heater is completely hidden within the walls of the plastic bucket
  • "Flat back" allows it to be conveniently hung in a stall
  • Unique storage area for the 60" cord at the bottom of the bucket which enables the safe use of the bucket all year round.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great, no frozen water even w low temps I bought a bucket for each of my three horses back in December. They drink from the buckets with no issues. The temp has dropped below zero and still no frozen water. The one thing to watch for is the way the handle is attached to the bucket. Two horses, no problem, third horse is very mouthy. In February, he managed to chew off the black plastic protectors where the handle is attached (both sides I might add), and cut his lip. (Bored, I guess!) I recommend pinching back the handle with pliers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What I Needed After last winter I knew I needed something to provide my ans my boarders horses with unfrozen water on those extremely cold nights when they are in stalls (24/7 turn out other wise). I ordered the 4 pack and I was amazed with how fast they shipped! The buckets are sturdy and I don't have to worry about the horses breaking them or the buckets cracking in the cold. The cord is nice and long and I know will last a long time with the protective coil around it. It keeps the water warm and encourages drinking. The only "bad" thing about it is that once filled with water the bucket becomes very heavy, not a problem for me, but my boarder is older and sometimes has a hard time carrying a full bucket.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Timing The weather has gotten so cold; this is the only bucket my horse has for water lately.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves money and sleep! I bought 2 of these buckets 5 years ago after a case of impaction colic. Just added another stall,so bought this one for the third horse. so nice to know the horses have warm water on cold nights, and no more midnight trips to the barn carrying jugs of hot water! These are great! SmartPak had the lowest price I could find on these buckets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more breaking ice in my bucket! I received a $10 coupon from SmartPak and decided to use it on a bucket that will make winter less painful for me this year! So far the temps in the barn haven't gone much below 30, but when they do, I am ready. The cord was a decent length and it wraps up in the bottom of the bucket so you can use it in the warmer months too.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
