We are saddened to report that former Buck Davidson ride Absolute Liberty, owned by Sharon Will, has passed away at the age of 17. Buck posted a statement on his Facebook page explaining that “Libby” was struggling with “medical issues that could no longer be maintained to keep her comfortable”.

It is with great sadness that I share that Absolute Liberty had to be put down the other day due to some medical issues…

Absolute Liberty was an Oldenburg mare (Chestnut Lady x Aberjack) who was partnered with Buck for the entirety of her international career. Buck and Libby represented the U.S. on the 2011 Pan American Games team in Guadalajara, Mexico, bringing home an individual bronze and a team gold medal.

The team here at EN extends its condolences to the Will family, the Davidson team, and everyone who knew and loved Absolute Liberty.
