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. 

Favorite Features
  • Encourages your horse's hydration during winter months
  • 600g of fill insulates buckets to end the ice breaking madness
  • Eliminates the need for heated water buckets, saving you money 
  • Durable, waterproof fabric can stand up to rough horse play

    SmartPak Insulated Water Bucket Cover- 5 Gallon is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 294.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good but.. I used this 1 winter and it did keep my bucket from freezing solid. However, I just got to washing it and the top part completely fell apart. Very disappointing!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it We have them for our horses and work like a dream! Only thing I would suggest is if your horse is not use to them cover one bucket and leave one uncovered until they are use to drinking out of them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I bought this because my 29+ year old gelding is having a problem with hay now. So to get him through this winter I needed to incorporate mash into his daily diet. Before I got this insulated cover the mash was freezing in his bucket and he wasn’t eating all of it. I have a 5 gallon flat back bucket I use for his mash. He eats all his mash now and it’s not frozen. Great cover, sturdy and well made.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No ice even on the coldest night. I’m amazed at how well this cover keeps my bucket ice free. There’s not even a skim of ice on single digit night. The bucket cover comes with a detachable top cover but I haven’t used it and even still there’s no ice. I would give this cover 5 stars but the Velcro straps that go around the bucket handle to hold the cover up often come undone. The cover has not completely fallen off but it does slide down the bucket and I usually have to fix it each morning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I bought this insulated water bucket cover for my mini horse who is in a pen every night to keep him from eating too much of the big horses hay! He is in the pen for about 13 hours every night. Here in Montana the winter nights are cold, and my dilemma was how was I going to give that horse water at night. I read the reviews as well as all the information and bought this item! It has been a life saver. Folks, please note, this insulated water bucket cover is NOT in a barn but literally outside underneath an open shelter. This is what has worked the best for me. I only fill 2 gallons of the 5 gallon bucket, reason being is less water is near the top which is more exposed to the frigid weather. I also keep the top lid cover on as well. I put in 2 gallons of very warm water. The water has withstood temperatures all night in the mid to high 20's with not one bit of ice. Oh yes, i also put the bucket with the insulated cover in a milk crate as this definitely stabilizes the water bucket just in case my mini wants to play with it. The only time i have seen ice at the top of the water is when there is wind, which creates an extreme wind chill or when it gets in the teens, but every morning half the water is gone and there is no ice or ice on top due to the above occurrences. I Highly recommend this product as it has been a life saver for my mini. Thank you Smart Pak.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cover has been amazing! This is my first winter having my horse at home in southern Maine. I have been using it for a month now and have only ever had a thin layer of ice in the buckets. I typically add 2 gallons or so of warm water at night to the cold water already in the buckets and have never had more than I micro thin layer of ice on top. And I don’t use the top cover. This morning it was 4 degrees out when I fed. They are in a non heated shed barn, just pony heat! I am lucky, my horses don’t mess with them at all. Definitely worth every penny to not need to hang out ice and to know my horse will have water available all night!

    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!
