100% Happiness Guarantee
HappinessGuarantee
At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Rubber Flatback Bucket is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for winter, Smartpak bucket cozy fits Due to freezing temps I bought this bucket (because rubber of course is easier to break ice out of), along with another Smartpak insulated bucket cozy cover. This rubber bucket is shaped a little differently from a standard 5 gallon flatback bucket so at first I thought the cozy wasn't going to work with it, but with some wrangling, it did! The cozy keeps the water from freezing as much (I would have just a film of ice instead of freezing solid) and in the worst weather, if I needed to kick ice out it, the rubber flexes and lets go, so it was a perfect combo for winter. :) I thought it was a little bit pricey for a bucket but I couldn't find any type of other rubber buckets (other stores sell this exact same bucket) so of course I chose to order it from Smartpak because of the awesome service and free shipping with my Smartpaks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed a tough bucket My horse is tough on buckets, hopefully this will be tougher!
    Date published: 2015-10-23
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a good size rubber bucket The bucket is a good size. The flat back keeps it from rolling around. The rim is still in tact even with my horse cribbing on it. It will be interesting to see how it holds up in the winter when the ice sets in. The rubber smell also goes away in a few hours of soaking in a mild bleach solution.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bucket, would recommend! This is a great bucket. My horse will throw his shallow rubber feeders. This one (mostly) stays grounded. I would prefer he not eat dirt with his feed :) It's a nice heavy weight, and large size. Rubber will not crack like plastic. Great buy!
    Date published: 2015-01-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bucket! This bucket is larger then I expected. I hang it on the wall and it works great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Bucket for Cold Weather I love this bucket and have many of them. They are indestructible and great to use in winter. Cold and snow don't bother them at all. A must have in every barn.
    Date published: 2014-02-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Staple For Any Barn! They Last A Long Time! I had bought the "The Better Bucket" that SmartPak sells a couple of times and the first time the bucket wore out and cracked around the handle area but it did hold up for over a year. Then, I replaced that bucket and got another "The Better Bucket" and the bottom fell out after a couple of months. So, I went back to my favorite Rubber Flatback Bucket that I have used for years and they hold up. They are heavy buckets and they hold up in the winter if you need to chip ice out of them or if a horse gets ruthless with them. Sometimes you just can't improve rubber. If "The Better Bucket" ever gets made into rubber I may buy one but my horses will have to deal with these buckets until then.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! This bucket is so well made it is sure to stand up to our cold New England winters!
    Date published: 2013-12-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have in the winter months These rubber buckets last year after year. Especially in the cold months, they stand up to ice and don't split like lighter weight plastic buckets.
    Date published: 2013-02-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luv these! These rubber buckets are great in winter-just knock the ice out, no thawing required. You can kick them around & they won't break/crack. Only issue is they do have a strong smell when they first arrive-I let them sit outside for awhile.
