Ride iQ Renews Partnership with the USEA

By Kaleigh Collett - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association, Inc. (USEA) is pleased to announce the return of an official USEA Educational Collaborator, Ride iQ. Ride iQ is a mobile app that allows riders to take audio lessons with top coaches while they ride, an opportunity that hasn’t existed before. In 2023, the USEA will partner with the company to offer exclusive content in collaboration with the USEA’s Eventing Coaches Program (ECP) and the EA21 program, as well as creating other unique educational opportunities.

“USEA’s ECP and EA21 programs are educational and development opportunities that can unlock really exciting potential for coaches and riders, and Ride iQ is a tool that can expand the reach of those benefits. The USEA x Ride iQ partnership is very true to Ride iQ’s purpose to give more people access to the best education, and we’re so glad to once again be aligned with USEA in pursuit of that goal.” said Jessa Lux, co-founder of Ride iQ.

Ride iQ was founded in 2021 by sisters McKinsey and Jessa Lux, and Canadian Olympian Kyle Carter, and is the first audio-focused training app for equestrians that gives riders the opportunity to access on-demand instruction while they ride. Ride iQ makes world-class coaching more accessible and affordable, allowing users unlimited access hundreds of lessons for every level that are sure to make your next schooling ride more enjoyable, safe, and productive. While the Ride iQ mobile app and audio lessons are the foundation of the business, other membership benefits include invitations to live virtual Ask-An-Expert events, a private Ride iQ Facebook community, and exclusive Ride iQ podcasts like Hack Chats and Conversations with Coaches. The company’s goal is to bring the most effective and compassionate coaching to every equestrian. In addition to a 14-day free trial with full membership benefits, Ride iQ has several full-length lessons and Ask-An-Expert sessions published on Spotify and Apple Podcasts so you can try the platform for yourself with no sign up or credit card required.

“The USEA is excited to continue our partnership with Ride iQ in the new year,” said USEA CEO, Rob Burk. “With the rejuvenation of the USEA’s Eventing Coaches Program, there couldn’t be a better time to partner with Ride iQ’s innovative education platform to continue to spread the knowledge that our wonderful, certified coaches have to offer.”

The Ride iQ team will also be on-site at the 2022 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention in Savannah, Georgia next week on December 7-11. Don’t miss their session on “How Tech Can Support the Best Eventers of the Future,” hosted by Kyle Carter, Jessa Lux and McKinsey Lux, and stop by their vendor booth to learn more!

Wildfires Create a Fluid Situation for Event Organizers

Morgan Rowsell had just wrapped up organizing a successful Essex H.T. in Far Hills, New Jersey, on June 4, but as he turned his attention to his next show two weeks later, he was faced with challenges presented by the effects that wildfires from Canada are now having on equestrian sports in the Northeast. “The very next day, the smoke came in,” he said. “It looks like a warm, humid, hazy day, but it’s not humid, it’s not warm, it’s actually quite cool. There’s no air. There’s very little breeze. There’s a northeast wind coming out of Canada that is bringing all the Novia Scotia and Quebec smoke to us, and it smells like smoke.”
