You're right there.  In this age of litigation, folks
are too scared to take on a newbie...especially if
said newbie is a junior.  And, on a different take,
older riders just getting into endurance CAN be too
intemidated to try the 100.

I don't know...so many variables.  Since the entry
rate is so low, it can be more advantagious, points
wise, to do a 2-day 50 with a full entry than a
one-day 100 with less than 4 entries.  You'd stand to
get as many points on the 2-day as the 1-day.  

I still enjoy the challenge.  I don't know if I have a
100 mile horse.  I know I DON'T have a 100 mile crew!
LOL!  My Dad may "just say NO" and my poor husband may
say, "bye!"  But, come June, I'll find out if my super
horse, Charlie Brown, is a 100 mile horse.  Someone
has already aske, "How do you know if you have a 100
mile horse?"  I guess you just gotta try it.
