A riding is a part of a county or shire. For instance, Yorkshire is large enough to have three ridings: the East Riding, West Riding and North Riding (mainly because the word was originally something like "Thirding" or one -third-part).

In the SCA, a riding is a branch that is part of a province. They are similar to cantons, except the closest royalty are the monarchs themselves, so awards cannot be given at the riding or provincial level.
