Come On, Sigge! is the third book in the series about the Shetland pony Sigge and pony-mad Elina and her friends who meet up at the delightful Shetland pony stables at Broby, run by Ingela, the best riding instructor in the world!

Here Elina meets Sigge, the sweetest little Shetland pony she’s ever seen. It’s love at first sight! Jossan, who looks after Sigge, is to ride him in a jumping competition on the estate next door. But it turns out it’s not that easy trying to get a little Shetland pony to jump, when he’s decided he doesn’t want to do it!

Besides which, Elina and her Mummy are going to have to look after all the horses at Broby for a whole day, all by themselves! Elina can’t wait, it’s going to be the best day of her life . . .!

A book about friendship, and about a little girl’s love for a horse.
