Why We Love This

Encourage wintertime drinking while saving time and money!
 
Your horse doesn’t like trying to drink from frozen water buckets any more than you like breaking the ice in them, and who can blame either of you? The SmartPak Insulated Water Bucket Cover is an effective and cost-conscious solution to frozen water buckets. It’s made from durable, waterproof fabric that can stand up to rough horse play with 600g of fill that insulates the water's original temperature, helping to ward off the formation of ice. It will extend the length of time the water takes to freeze, ending the ice breaking madness and encouraging healthy hydration in cold weather. 
Burgundy Color unavailable at this time

Please note: the length of time that it takes for water to freeze can vary depending on sun exposure and the temperature of the air and water. 

Imported.

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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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.

    SmartPak Insulated Water Bucket Cover- 5 Gallon is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 288.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water Isn't Frozen I bought this to use in my mare's pasture during the day. I keep the bucket in my house overnight and fill it will water from the hydrant for during the day. So far the water has not frozen with some pretty cold days. Very happy with the results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it! After reading reviews on several sites, then searching for the best price/value, I bought 3 cozies from SmartPak. They are worth it--it's been in the teens on some nights, no ice at all. I used to use heated water buckets, but was concerned about fire hazard and "what if" I wasn't home to catch it, and the added expense to the electric bill. These are EASY to install. The horses didn't even bat an eye, even my curious Saddlebred didn't mess with it at all. Light weight, so cleaning buckets can be done with ease without removing them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bucket Cover - Using Hot Water I bought this bucket cover last winter and love it. I have one horse that due to health issues, must be stalled in the winter (board in Wisconsin). I fill the bucket with hot water when I go up during the late morning and she is brought in between 4-5. The next day when I visit, I have not yet found any ice in the bucket. I prefer to use hot water so I know that the water does not freeze overnight. I can't speak for what happens when cold water is used. The moisture from the hot water can cause the bucket cover to freeze and/or if the horses slobbers on it but I can easily remove the top cover and defrost it in my car or warming room at the barn.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working Great! We do put hot water in at night (It's on the ground for our pony) and in the morning there may be some slight ice in it but it far less ice then I have in my large tanks that have heaters in them. So it's doing great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-have My horses have access to their paddocks 24/7 and for a couple years have had no power for heated buckets. Even now with power to my barn I’d rather use these in the stalls than combine electricity + horses + water. Significant difference in how long water keeps from icing with the bucket cover versus the buckets without. Even without using the top cover piece these are still very effective. I use rubber flatback buckets instead of the hard plastic ones so IF ice does form I can crack it without cracking the buckets. So worth it even with the initial wrestling match to get the covers ON the rubber buckets :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit Wondered how it would fit and it does really well- snug but not too tight.
    Date published: 2019-12-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Prevented ice! I bought three of these at the beginning of the winter season due to not wanting to use electric heated buckets. So far the have worked great at keeping the water from freezing ! I think they work better if you have access to putting hot water in them when the temp gets below 20 but still not frozen. If anything there’s just a very thin layer of ice. I would buy again !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more frozen buckets I ordered the insulated bucket cover a few weeks ago before we got in the single digits for a couple days. I read the reviews and decided to try it. I put 2 gallons of hot water then fill the rest with cold water. Works great. I put the cover over the top of the bucket and my mare hasn't messed with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why didn't I know they existed years ago? Here is my setup so you can compare to yours: I live in Colorado, so we get our fair share of winter and below-zero temperatures. My horse is boarded. He's in a barn stall with a run at night and pasture turnout during the day. He is a messy hay-dunker, so I keep multiple water options available. Even though the buckets are in the stall and protected, they woudl still freeze on the coldest days. In other words, most of the winter! For years I cursed frozen buckets, but no more! I bought two covers last year and two more this year. They are well-constructed, easy to take off/on to clean, and I highly recommend them.
