[RC] Horse's 1st 100/Kyle - frank solano

I'd go along with Cindy Collins in this matter. 
You know your horse better than anyone else on this list.
You know what miles you've done or haven't done.
If you believe your horse is sound and ready, do what you want...don't just "try"...DO the OD 100.
Ride from vet check to vet check, enjoy the trail and if things aren't going well, treasure the miles you did and stop.  It's not that complicated to successfully complete a 100, as long as you are committed to completing it NOW, today, tomorrow and all the days leading up to The Day.
"To Finish Is To Win" is a nice motto, but, stopping if your horse isn't doing well can really make you a "winner," especially with the horse.
I wish you the very best ride THAT day and ALL the days,
Frank Solano
