Garen. Or Ryze. Or Pantheon. Gangplank can also rape riven if he builds a cutlass and gets his jungler to be ready to countergank.
No need to cry about her now. Beating Riven is like playing her. There's a big learning curve.
Edit: By the way these champions are not by any means the only things that hardcounters Riven. I don't want to give away too many extremely hard counters since i like elo.
Those heroes do counter Riven.
But not Pantheon, pantheon gets raped by Riven.
kennen gets raped
Kennen. Urgot. Caitlyn (but the meta! I know). Corki. Gragas. The list goes on and on and on... just don't pick someone like Irelia and expect to beat her early game.
All Wheel Drive
Gp does ok vs Riven, but only if that GP is smart enough not to harass so much that he runs out of mana, when and if he does, he's a goner. Rumble is annoying, and so is Tryn early game.
Yorick, and to a lesser degree, Teemo.
when did riven become OP? lol
i feel that a good jarvan can beat her, esp vs a less experienced riven.
Yorick is the only "true" counter to Riven. She can't do a thing against him. Way too much healing.
Anyone with sustain will beat her. Xin is also a good counter.
