Basics

Riven is an extremely strong champion, her combo sequencing is absolutely devastating for laning solo and in the middle of a team fight. Every game you should try to build to your champion to counter the enemy.
Don't down vote because it isn't IN-DEPTH this is just how I build Riven

Skill Sequence

While soloing in a lane I generally use my shield to go in then stun, and then I use broken wings to do damage and knock them into the air for even more hits. Some people say to do similar things, but I like this the most, now as you get more advanced try to get basic attacks in between moves to add the damage up faster and secure kills/push out of lane.

Don't focus on getting broken wings up because it doesn't gain any Cool down Reduction while the stun and shield get better cool downs.

Jungling

I don't recommend this because there are too many better junglers out there and she preforms much better in the lane.
