Ride iQ Joins as an Official USEA Educational Collaborator

By Claire Kelley - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce the new collaboration with Ride iQ, a one-of-a-kind platform with on-demand audio lessons taught by the world’s top equestrian coaches. Ride iQ will join as an ‘Official USEA Educational Collaborator’ and will provide educational content to all USEA members.

“Ride iQ exists to give all riders access to the best coaches in the world so they can have better experiences and performances with their horses. Through our collaboration with USEA, Ride iQ will feature audio lessons by ICP-certified instructors so riders from around the world can benefit from these highly qualified coaches. We’re thrilled,” said Jessa Lux, Co-Founder of Ride iQ.

Ride iQ was founded in 2021 by sisters McKinsey and Jessa Lux and is the first audio-focused training app for equestrians and gives riders the opportunity to access on-demand instruction while they ride. Ride iQ provides affordable, unlimited access to world-class coaching for more enjoyable, safe, and productive schooling. While the Ride iQ mobile app and audio lessons are the foundation of the business, other membership benefits include access to live virtual Office Hours with Ride iQ coaches, the private Ride iQ Facebook group, and private Ride iQ podcasts.

Now, in addition to the 7-day free trial with full membership benefits, Ride iQ has two full length lessons published on Spotify and Apple Podcasts so you can try it for yourself with no sign up or credit card required.

“We are very excited to start this new collaboration with Ride iQ to further educate our membership,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “Ride iQ allows eventers from every area the opportunity to access lessons and training from highly respected eventing instructors. Many of the instructors featured on Ride iQ, like Jonathan Holling and Peter Gray, are certified through the USEA Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) which is always an added bonus.”
