Jamboree Pony Pin
The "Jamboree" pony pin was sculpted by Kristina Lucas Francis and introduced in earthenware ceramic in 1997. It is the first dedicated Pour Horse pin. Fifteen white-grey pins were made for attendees of Joanie's 1997 Jamboree seminar. Ten numbered bay pins were given to entrants of the 1998 Kalamazoo Valley Live.* Another fifteen bay pins, this time unnumbered, were given to attendees of Joanie's 1998 Jamboree seminar. Fifteen buckskin ponies with blue rosettes were given as prizes for first place in the Original Finish China and Resin division at the 1998 Jamboree; fifteen chestnut ponies without ribbons were given away as second place prizes for this same show. At the 2000 Pour Horse photo show, four leopard appies and four buckskins with handpainted manes were given away. At the 2003 Pour Horse photo show, eleven sets of rainbow colored pins were given out, which included dark blue pony pins with rosettes and peach pony pins without.

*Kalamazoo Valley Live was the first show to host Pour Horse collector classes and the first to receive these little pins as prizes. In 1997 they were the bay pony pins; in 1998,the Bressay head pins; and in 1999, the bay mule pins.
