[RC] New incentive to enter 100's - FRANK LASSEN

I have read the discussion regarding "credit for miles completed". I am surprised at the responses. If you enter a 75 mile ride and end your ride at 50 miles you did ride 50 miles. Why not get credit????  To Finish is to Win! If you finish the 50 miles of a 75 (or whatever) you still finished 50 miles!
Let's say you go to work one day and get sick at lunchtime, do you get paid for the half day you worked? Or do you tell your boss "no, I don't want to be paid because I only worked a half day and didn't finish my shift".
It is painful and frustrating enough to have to quit or pull out of a ride. The option to stop early and get credit for work done may save some horses from being over ridden and boost the moral of some riders. The questions that come to mind for those against the proposal is " how does the new rule proposal hurt you and how does it help you"?
Think about it long term please.
