[RC] Creating New 100 Mile Riders and a question - Tiffany D'Virgilio

A quick question. Here is my situation-I had some bad luck this year. My mare with a BIG base on her pulled her groin last year at Mariposa, she's had most of the year since off with some light riding since. My other mare pulled (slight) a suspensory doing the 65 in Ridgecrest in Feb. In late March I had a complete hysterectomy and they tore my bladder leading to sepsis, and I have hyperthyroidism that is still not resolved, but my goal was to do Fire Mountain's 100 this year.
Is this still feasible? How long to bring a horse back after a long layoff? One had a large base of conditioning, the other not so large.
Advice for getting back to competing and making sure my horse stays sound, me too for that matter.
Thanks, Tiffany

With all of the discussion about how 100s are dying out, and how new riders don't seem to be moving up to 100s at a rate high enough to replace those who are dropping out, retiring, whatever, we just seem to be going in circles. I know that it's a bit of a "chicken or the egg" question situation...we need more 100s spread around the country to make it easier for people to get to one, but we need more people willing to ride them to make it worthwhile for RMs to put them on.
