This is the top of the line when it comes to automatic waterers for horses.

Backed with our 5 YEAR WARRANTY, this unit will serve fresh, clean water on demand, year-round.


New version LAUNCHED 2021 

This is a complete redesign of our original Drinking Post Waterer.   This model is called the Ultimate Watering Post.   For Horses, Mules, and Donkeys (Clydesdales to miniatures), thirsty horses press their nose to the paddle in an empty bowl. Fresh, clean water instantly fills the bowl with water that is 50 degrees F temperature throughout the year.

What Size?

What Size Non Electric Automatic Waterer is Best for You?

The the bottom of Drinking Posts should be installed a minimum of 18″ below the local frost line

Identifying what size waterer is appropriate for your specific application will be determined by two factors:

  • What type of animals will use the Drinking Post Waterer?
  • What is your local frost line?


All Drinking Posts are the same diameter and have the same size bowl. Depending on your specific application, you can install the Drinking Post Waterer such that the height of the unit when installed is at whatever height above ground you desire.


You want to ensure that your animals are able to reach the top of the waterer comfortably. Generally, this is the typical height of the Drinking Post Waterer above ground level once installed:


AnimalStandard Installation Height
Horse Waterer3′ Above Ground Level
Cattle Waterer18″ – 24″ Above Ground Level
Sheep & Goat Waterer12″ – 24″ Above Ground Level


What Is the Frost Line In My Local Area?

The frost line is the maximum depth that the ground will freeze to in the winter. Proper installation requires that the deepest point of The Drinking Post be installed a MINIMUM of 18″ below your local frost line to prevent freezing in the winter.


There are few avenues one can use to determine the frost line in your local area:

  • Contact your local Building Department
  • Contact your county’s Water Department
  • Any reputable local excavator will be able to quickly tell you what the frost line is in your local area.

The the bottom of Drinking Posts should be installed a minimum of 18″ below the local frost line

SO happy with the Drinking Post Waterers. We've had ours for three years now and couldn't be more pleased. Love that they don't require electricity and work even in the harsh mountain winters!

We installed DP two years ago in both our barn and pasture. Couldn't be more happy. We had a terrible long winter in the PNW and midst the ice and snow the DP's never failed. Such a gift not to have to plug in water heaters and deal with breaking ice. We bring in new horses for training and it has been amazing to me how quickly they learn to drink from the DP. Thrilled with our product and the help and service we have received. -

The drinking post has made our life so much easier!!! No more carrying buckets or wrestling hoses ! We highly recommend buying this product. We trained our horses in 2 days exactly like the video says . It works!!!! It did take a few weeks to train the donkeys, but donkeys are stubborn that’s not a secret lol they love the waterer and actually use it for entertainment. Also customer service is amazing . All questions answered right away !! Very helpful and responsive. Thank you drinking posts for everything
