Synonyms of "Riding" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Riding and Ridin’ ?
A: There should be a very subtle difference in how they are pronounced- 'riding', if pronounced correctly, should end in an 'ing' sound. Ridin' will end in a harsher 'in' sound and it could sound like the word is shorter because of this. Ridin' is used in casual conversations and won't appear in things like essays or books (unless the book features someone talking in slang) because ridin' isn't the correct form of the word, it is merely a slang version of 'riding'.
