Ride \Ride\, verb (used without an object) [imp. {Rode} (r[=o]d) ({Rid} [r[i^]d], archaic); p. p. {Ridden}({Rid}, archaic); p. pr. & vb. n. {Riding}.] [AS. r[imac]dan; akin to LG. riden, D. rijden, G. reiten, OHG. r[imac]tan, Icel. r[imac][eth]a, Sw. rida, Dan. ride; cf. L. raeda a carriage, which is from a Celtic word. Cf. {Road}.]

1. To be carried on the back of an animal, as a horse.

To-morrow, when ye riden by the way. --Chaucer.

2. To be borne in a carriage; as, to ride in a coach, in a car, and the like. See Synonym, below.

5. To manage a horse, as an equestrian.

{To ride easy} (Naut.), to lie at anchor without violent pitching or straining at the cables.

{To ride to hounds}, to ride behind, and near to, the hounds in hunting.

Syn: Drive.

Usage: {Ride}, {Drive}. Ride originally meant (and is so used throughout the English Bible) to be carried on horseback or in a vehicle of any kind. At present in England, drive is the word applied in most cases to progress in a carriage; as, a drive around the park, etc.; while ride is appropriated to progress on a horse. Johnson seems to sanction this distinction by giving "to travel on horseback" as the leading sense of ride; though he adds "to travel in a vehicle" as a secondary sense. This latter use of the word still occurs to some extent; as, the queen rides to Parliament in her coach of state; to ride in an omnibus.

"Will you ride over or drive?" said Lord Willowby to his quest, after breakfast that morning. --W. Black.
