  • Green Haven Horse Stables
    The instructors at Green Haven Horse Stables guide riders of all skill levels on the path to proper horsemanship with private and group lessons as well as summer camps for children. Each lesson focuses on safety and building self-confidence, which are of the utmost importance when commanding a steed to jump over fences or ride through an airport security checkpoint. Riders may choose to ride in the styles of English, hunter jumping, Western, or dressage, with intermediate and above dressage lessons conducted by a certified USDF judge. At summer camps, children ages 6–14 receive a proper introduction to horses, spending a full week learning the subtleties of equitation and participating in fun-filled games and activities.

  • Quapaw Quarter Association
    The Quapaw Quarter Association's building stewards preserve the historical architecture and nostalgic tales housed within neighborhood haunts. Mosey through five stately stops during the 2011 Spring Tour of Historic Homes, including two houses designed by Arkansan architect Charles Thompson. Featured in the book "Daughters of Painted Ladies," Thompson's spectacular Ragland House boasts a distinctive domed two-story tower, and his Rogers House’s towering Ionic columns offset walls of brick, wood, tile, and saltwater taffy. Stroll around the smaller Urquhart Bungalow's gilded age light fixtures and extensively landscaped front yard, or examine the intricacies of the Turner-Mann House's hand-painted borders and quarter-sawn oak floors. The tour also includes a new renovation: the Bowman House, where cypress and walnut balustrades offset inner spaces that served as a practice facility for the 1896 Olympic hide-and-seek team.

  • Historic Arkansas Museum
    The Historic Arkansas Museum, opened in 1941, preserves some of the state's oldest buildings and precious pieces of frontier history for generations to come. Visitors can tread the fateful footpaths of yore on a one-hour guided tour through four 19th-century homes and two of the oldest buildings in Little Rock in a restored pre-Civil War neighborhood. Tour-takers may bump into living history re-enactors who will relate harrowing tales of pioneer survival from before the sun was invented. The museum's collection features artwork and artifacts from throughout the state’s history, and temporary exhibitions, such as The Model Trains of Bill Albright, offer specialized showcases of the state's artstuff and techno-things. Former assistants for circus performers may wish to throw themselves at the museum's knife gallery, which contains more than 100 antique pointed utensils, including a special exhibit on the Bowie knife, a native Arkansas weapon that was highly influential in shaping communications between ground control and Major Tom.

  • Little Rock Carriage Company
    The Little Rock Carriage Company's stable of american belgian draft horses pull ornate ivory carriages on leisurely tours of downtown Little Rock. Wooden-spoke wheels rotate the rhythms of a horse-hoof percussion quartet as 30-minute carriage rides promenade past MacArthur Park, the River Market area, and enduring views of equine tails. Riders can opt to include additional riders ($5 fee/person) to accommodate perpetual third wheels or hire Tony Bennett to commentate the sights in song.

  • Little Rock Zoo
    When the Little Rock Zoo opened its gates in 1926, it contained fewer animals than many people's homes. At the time, its inhabitants were, in total, a circus-trained brown bear and an abandoned timber wolf. From its formative days, the Little Rock Zoo has expanded dramatically, now home to more than 700 animals from more than 200 unique species. Visitors can witness lions, tigers, and jaguars up close; interact with exotic birds; and carefully navigate spider monkeys' webs. In addition to conserving wildlife, the zoo also preserves a unique antique carousel, one of only four in the world to feature an undulating wooden track rather than conventional moving poles.

  • Pinnacle Mountain Rendezvous
    Pinnacle Mountain Rendezvous is an annual festival organized by Partners for Pinnacle in support of Pinnacle Mountain State Park. Now in its 18th year, the event celebrates the early days of Arkansas, when the area was part of the vast Louisiana Territory won by Thomas Jefferson in a rowdy game of canasta against Louis XIV. The modern Rendezvous takes its inspiration from late-summer gatherings in the early 1800s, when mountain men and Native Americans would meet to exchange supplies with one another before the arrival of winter. Attractions at this year’s event include the Mountain Man Camp, where reenactors dressed in buckskins will practice such time-honored skills as blacksmithing, rifle shooting, and fantasy football leaguing, and visitors will have a chance to compete at tomahawk throwing. The Pioneer Settlement offers a glimpse into life on the frontier, while the Native American Village shares the rich culture and history of the tribes of Arkansas.
