At the Riding Camp with Sigge is the fifth book about pony-mad Elina and her friend who meet up at the delightful Shetland pony stables at Broby, run by Ingela, the best riding instructor in the world!

It’s the summer holidays, and time for riding camp at last. Elina’s dream has come true - a whole week with Sigge! And with all her friends from the stables. So many treats are in store - trekking, mischief in the hayloft, learning how to jump, swimming on horseback, everything a riding camp should be.

The Sigge books form a series about horses written by Lin Hallberg and illustrated throughout by Margareta Nordquist. Everybody Loves Sigge was awarded a prize by the Book Jury, which is children’s own list of the year’s best books. The books have also been praised by critics and by those who work with children and in libraries.

At the Riding Cam with Sigge is the fifth book about Elina and her friends who hang out at the charming Shetland pony stables in Broby which is run by Ingela, the best riding instructor in the whole wide world! This is where Elina meets Sigge, the sweetest little Shetland pony she’s ever seen.
