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'!).

    Rubber Flatback Bucket is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20.
    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bucket, strong odor I bought three of these for my gelding that cribs hoping that he won't destroy them like he has other buckets. I am pleased with the durability but concerned about their strong rubber odor. I have let them sit outside in the air and rain for 2 weeks hoping the smell would mellow but so far it is still as strong. I am hoping this doesn't discourage him from drinking from them when finally put to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buckets These buckets are excellent and really do well. I have four and absolutely love them. They don't leave rub marks on my mare's face. She likes to scratch on the bucket lip and plastic buckets tend to break and cut her. GREAT VALUE!!
