Aidan Coleman (born 17 August 1988) is an Irish horse racing jockey.

Born in Innishannon, Cork, Ireland, Coleman rode in the 2008 Grand National at the age of 19, his first time riding in that steeplechase. He was one of the youngest riders ever to start the Grand National. In April 2009, Aidan won the Conditional Championship making him the leading Conditional jockey in the UK for the 2008 season.

Coleman in 2009 signed a two-year deal with Racing UK, a British horse racing television channel, to wear their logo while racing. As part of the deal, Coleman was also to appear on the channel.
