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.

    Heated Flatback Bucket is rated 4.5472 out of 5 by 53.
    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trustworthy We don't get really cold but have no heat in the barn. The bucket works great to make sure the horses have water at all times.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not last I had it for last 2 winters in Georgia then stored it indoors over the summer. Went to use it this winter and it no longer works. It's a little pricey to have to replace every year or two!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Careful with this bucket Unfortunately the bale wire isn't hidden from the horse. Mine got her tail caught in it, pulled away ripping out lots of hair and straightening the bale completely. Valley Vet has better designed buckets. I'll go back to those next time.
