Sophie's Further Adventures by Dick King-Smith
Sophie is small, but very determined. She's crazy about animals and wants to be a farmer when she grows up. She'd love to have a pony, but doesn't think she'll ever be that lucky. She does meet a nice one called Bumblebee, though, while on holiday at the seaside, where she also makes friends with a Vietnamese pot-bellied pig! Read all about Sophie, her family and friends - animal and human - in these three galloping stories: Sophie in the Saddle, Sophie Is Seven and Sophie's Lucky.
