Tuesday’s Horse is the Official Blog of the Fund for Horses.
Founding President Vivian Grant formed the Fund for Horses in Texas in 2003 as a 501(c)(4) non profit equine protection organization. The Mission of the Fund for Horses is to promote the health, safety and welfare of horses, both domestic and in the wild.
The Fund for Horses accomplishes its Mission by raising awareness, conducting imaginative and effective campaigns, lobbying for stronger horse protection laws and promoting the enforcement of existing ones.
As the Fund for Horses expanded and began to work outside the US, we also began doing business as the Int’l Fund for Horses with offices in London and Belgium. With the advent of social media, we subsequently closed those offices, and employ staff and volunteers who chiefly work from home offices.
From our earliest days we sent email update letters to our followers every Tuesday which became to be known as Tuesday’s Horse. With the advent of the blog, we named it after our very popular newsletter.
Tuesday’s Horse continues to perform as it has since its beginning — functioning as the Fund’s central news source and home to our action alerts and calls to action.
Please visit fundforhorses.org when you have a moment. It has a wealth of tools, information and in depth reports for the horse lover and advocate.
Tuesday’s Horse Cartoon Logo
Our Tuesday’s Horse typing horse logo was created for us by English cartoonist Ian Baker.
Baker has cartoons published in — Private Eye, The Spectator, The Times, The Sun, Penthouse, Reader’s Digest (UK & US), SAGA, Nickelodeon (US), New Statesman, Daily Star, Prospect, Punch, The Picture (Australia), Bravo Sport (Germany), People (Australia), New Blitz (Italy), Maxim and more.
The gorgeous image at the top of this page is our signature horse. Its use was given to us by noted English photographer Bob Langrish.
In 2010, H.M. Queen Elizabeth II bestowed Bob Langrish with a prestigious M.B.E. ( Member of the Order of the British Empire ) for Equestrian Photography and Services to Art (over a period of 38 years).

The Fund for Horses is the single most influential lobbying and watchdog organization dedicated to the protection of Horses. Launched in 2003, the Fund for Horses works for horses through intervention, education and legislation.
