Depends what else the army has. Only problem i see with spiders riders is that, unlike wolf riders, they have no option of not being fast cavalry, so no option of having ranks, and they move slower too.
25 sounds like a lot, how many points are the games you play 25 in?
I generally can't find much use for SRs, you could do a forest gobbo theme though, I saw one one in a WD a while back (for the Lustria campaign I think it was) when common gobbos were converted slightly to look more feral, and were given warpaint etc. I also saw a similar list at a tournament where a guy used NG rules for his FGs, and had some really nicely converted fanatics!
However, a pure fast cav force would be tricky to play with, but I commend you for having the guts to give it a go, and would encourage you to at least try it out!
(If i can be arsed to write gobbo articles i'll refer here alot, it's 95% right on)
Avian - Forest Goblins
Edit - That's a link to a forest gobbo army builder BTW (It's unofficial but looks fun)

i played my first game today against a new warriors of chaos army.
Festus the lichlord
10 warrriors, tzeentch
10 warriors, nurgle
Goblin big boss, best basha, amulet of protectyness,gigantic spider
Gobin Shamen, chariot, itty ring
3 units of 10 riders
It was a fairly even game but for some bad ones on animosaty at cruicial times, however i dont think i could have won. I don't feel i have enough armour penetration to take on the 2+ save of chaos (nor there magic!). To be honest they just outclassed me. The giant did the best, jumping up and down on his knights, and then squishing my spider riders when he fell over. The big boss took out the lich lord fairly easily and just took the exalted before being multi charged by 2 units of warriors.
I think i need something a bit stronger, maybe squigs, or fanatics, or both! I am considering on getting a unit of black orcs and a big boss. What do you think? I have 2 units of 20 night goblins. However i want to keep as close to my spider thing as possible. One thing though that i have learned from my first game with orcs and goblins is that they are really fun and so unpredictable, and i like them!
I am thinking of turning this into some thing where i build up my army and add to it untill i get to a certain amount of points where i have a big army. If i do i will be doing it in the painting project forum.
