Visual learners, we have your back! The Ride iQ app includes two types of videos:

  • Lesson support videos: 1 to 6-minute videos that correspond with a specific audio lesson and can be watched before taking that lesson. There are video libraries within the flatwork and jumping lesson categories (e.g. flatwork videos are found in Lessons > Flatwork > Flatwork Videos > Lesson Support Clips), and they’re also linked in the episode description of the specific audio lesson they accompany.
  • Full video lessons: 5 to 20-minute videos you can watch from your couch, the grocery store line, your kid’s soccer game…wherever you want! Topics include things like “Seeing a distance" and "Owning your corners." These videos are found in Lessons > Flatwork > Flatwork Videos > Full Video Lessons.

I don't have service at my farm. Can I download the lessons?

I logged into the app. Where should I start?

Down chevron for accordian

Your first time in the Ride iQ app...this is exciting! First, take the Ride iQ Lesson Finder Quiz. It only takes 2 minutes, and it will equip you with 15-20 lessons that will be a great fit for you and your horse!

Within the app, you can click the search icon (it looks like a magnifying glass) in the upper righthand corner of the screen to search for any lessons from your list. You can also navigate to lessons or browse lessons by clicking Lessons in the bottom navigation bar.

Tap on any lesson to view the lesson description, which includes what type of horse/rider the lesson is most suitable for, anything you may want to look at before riding (a diagram or short video clip), and a play-by-play of what to expect during the lesson.

When you find one you like, get on your horse and press play!

Ride iQ is for riders of all levels, ages, and aspirations!

The lessons span from all-walk beginner lessons to lessons focused on perfecting upper level movements. Our members include young kids learning how to ride all the way to professionals who are using Ride iQ during their training rides. If you’re worried there won’t be lessons for you, worry-no-more!

What headphones should I use for Ride iQ?

Down chevron for accordian

Any wireless headphones you like will work great! If you’re looking to buy a pair, we recommend Aftershokz headphones. Aftershokz use bone conduction technology so you can hear your audio lesson without having buds directly in your ears. They’re comfortable under a helmet and can withstand the wear and tear of activity. There are a few models to choose from–they all work great, including the least expensive Open Move model ($80).

If you prefer a bluetooth speaker, we recommend the Noxgear 39g Wearable Bluetooth Speaker (named 39g because it only weighs 39 grams). Yes, wearable! You can clip this lightweight speaker to your shirt and carry-on without distraction–no-bounce guaranteed!

How should I carry my phone with me while riding?

Down chevron for accordian

You have options!

Runners Belts

Breeches with Pockets

These options are women’s breeches. Men, breeches with pockets probably isn’t your best bet! Here are some we like:

Phone Holsters

❤️ from our members
As an adult amateur who often rides alone between hauling to lessons, it’s really nice to have access to so many varied and amazing lessons with coaches that I would never get to ride with in person.

Micki McDaniel

Ride iQ has played a huge role in the success of training my OTTBs!

Keegan Oswald

With Ride iQ I have a bevy of lessons to motivate and challenge me to ride more, ride better and get out of my comfort zone. It’s truly an amazing service and I intend to be a member for years to come!

Ashley Schmitt

I love Ride iQ. It has been a tremendous value add to my program keeping me accountable to my horses and making sure they are getting what they need from our training sessions.

Jaclyn Burke

5 stars!!! It is hard to summarize all of the things I love about Ride iQ. Just the way it works is genius. To ride along with top riders as they ride and how it seamlessly translates...bravo!!!

Heather Updegraff McWilliams

This is honestly the first subscription I’ve seen or used that is so worth a monthly fee. Thank you! And pat your horse!


As someone who doesn’t have the time/budget to be at the barn learning daily, Ride iQ helps me stay knowledgeable while at my desk job, doing housework, and commuting! It’s amazing to have top athletes from all over the world available a tap away!


Great exercises for riders and horses of all levels. It is really helpful for those days when you’re schooling by yourself and can’t come up with what to work on. Just put in some headphones and ride along with a top professional!

Kristina Huff

Highly recommend. It's a great value for so many lessons!

Heather Jones

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Ride iQ! My in-person trainer tells me what to work on and I pull a bunch of lessons from Ride iQ for my rides between lessons!

Ashley Winterroth

My favorite part is being part of this incredibly supportive community. Despite riding at very different levels, everyone is so happy to celebrate “wins" of every variety!

Kara Doberstein

I love Ride iQ! I have bought different books or apps related to horses, but I found myself paying and not really using them. Ride iQ is the polar opposite! Well worth the money!
