The fifteen year old mare was returned to her owner – Lady Georgina Forbes – earlier this year after disagreements in regards to the contract between Forbes and Kürten. During her career with Jessica Kürten, Libertina has won nine 5* Grand Prix in Monaco, London, Dublin, São Paulo, Leipzig, Zurich and Gothenburg. The pair was also victorious in the 2007 Rolex Top Ten Final in Geneva. In the 2006 World Cup final in Kuala Lumpur, they finished second.
