"Riding Free" is the theme song to Spirit Riding Free. Only the chorus is heard as the introduction to each episode. Three different versions of the song have been used for the show.

"Riding Free" was originally written and performed by prolific Hollywood theme song writer Kari Kimmel.[1] In May 2017, DreamWorks Records released a version of the song with Maisy Stella (of the sister duo Lennon and Maisy) providing vocals.[2] The Maisy Stella performance began to be used as the intro to the show starting with the first episode of Season 3,[3] but Stella did not receive a credit until the second episode of Season 4.[4] A music video with lyrics for this performance was released in November 2017.[5]

In May 2018, DreamWorks released a version of the song sung by show cast members Amber Frank (Lucky), Sydney Park (Pru), and Bailey Gambertoglio (Abigail).[6] With the first episode of Season 5,[7] the cast version of the song replaced Stella's version as the episode introduction theme, with appropriate credit in the end titles.

Darcy Rose Byrnes sang her own version of "Riding Free" as Maricela in one episode of the show.[8]

Full lyrics

(VERSE 1)

(this is omitted in most episodes' openings)

I'm setting out into the great unknown
I don't know where I'm goin'
But I'm ready

Ready to live out every single dream
I'm stronger than I seem
Yeah, I'm fearless
Nothing's gonna hold me back

(CHORUS)

(this is where episodes normally begin the song. Note: in season 7 while the first 3 lines remain the same, the 4th line is changed from "Come on this journey with me" to "Come on THE journey with me", and the 5th/6th lines are changed to Spanish translations of the repeated 1st/2nd lines. It reverts to English for the 7th line "As long as I am here with you".)

I'm gonna ride
I'm riding free
So come along, let's go along
Come on this journey with me
I'm gonna ride (I'm gonna ride)
I'm riding free (So far and free)
As long as I am here with you
I feel the spirit within me
Yeah, eh, eh (Yeah, eh, eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, eh, eh (Yeah, eh, eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, eh, eh (Yeah, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh)

(VERSE 2)

(like verse 1 this is omitted in most episodes' openings, which ONLY uses the chorus sung)

I'm breathing in all this open space
Tryin' to find my place
In this big ol' world

And I'm getting closer every single day
There's nothing in my way
Yeah, I'm fearless
And no one's gonna hold me back

(CHORUS)

(1st repeat)

I'm gonna ride
I'm riding free
So come along, let's go along
Come on this journey with me
I'm gonna ride (I'm gonna ride)
I'm riding free (So far and free)
As long as I am here with you
I feel the spirit within me
Yeah, eh, eh (Yeah, eh, eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, eh, eh (Yeah, eh, eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, eh, eh (Yeah, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh)

(VERSE 3)

(also omitted in the standard episode openings)

I can see myself standing taller now
And I can feel myself reaching for the now
But I know who I am and I'm gonna show
I feel it now, yeah I feel it now
I can see myself standing taller now
And I can feel myself reaching for the now
But I know who I am and I'm gonna show
I feel it now, yeah I feel it now

(CHORUS)

(2nd repeat)

I'm gonna ride
I'm riding free
So come along, let's go along
Come on this journey with me
I'm gonna ride (I'm gonna ride)
I'm riding free (So far and free)
As long as I am here with you
I feel the spirit within me
Yeah, eh, eh (Yeah, eh, eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, eh, eh (Yeah, eh, eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, eh, eh (Yeah, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh)
