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 3 out of 5 by from Eh Ya know I have used these in the past at diffrent farms I have eworked at, and I was hoping for a better design with it being Yeats later, I like the bucket don't get me wrong but the cord is a few inches to short

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love how warm it stays! My horses drink more in the winter now that they each have one of these in their stalls! The water is noticeably warmer than the outside temperature and I've never had an issue in 5 years of use. Very happy with these buckets.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay but could be better I was concerned if they would turn off or burn out if run dry. Factory rep could not really tell me how they worked. Said they could be dry for hours, but they get VERY hot if water level gets low. I'd prefer they turned off sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Durable and works well. I live in the snowbelt, east of Cleveland, Ohio. Our winters can be tough. This bucket is a great addition to my horses care and works great. No more frozen bucket!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great This product works great for not letting the buckets freeze and keeping the water temperature more palatable for the horses during the winter. Only drawback is it does add to the electric bill substantially If using several of them.
