Leaders Of The Times: Pat Dempsey’s Beloveds Farm
Pat Dempsey, of Beloveds Farm, in Lady Lake, Fla., has been back in Arabians for just two short years—or long ones, if you count what all she has packed into them. She purchased her first mares in 1978, but around 2000, drifted away from the breed; in Colorado at 9,000 feet, where she lived, the demands of winter care for 45 horses took their toll. It would be 2006 before she decided that Florida was a more inviting climate for her one remaining Arabian, an old Bey Shah gelding who is still with her now at age 37, and the Miniature Horses she had acquired to satisfy her equine interests. Another seven years would pass before she found that she couldn’t resist the familiar lure of Arabians. Since then, however, it has been full speed ahead.
The result? One has only to look at the two fillies pictured for September on the Arabian Horse Times calendar. Beloved Vitoria Pearl and Beloved Divina Vitoria, born from the Scottsdale Auction breeding for Vitorio TO—Dempsey’s first purchase upon getting back in the business—illustrate the quality she always has sought. It is what she is rapidly becoming known for again.
“I know what type of horse I want to breed,” Dempsey says, “and my babies are really sought after. I have only nine [foals] and I’ve had people make offers on every one of them. I don’t want to sell them till I know what I’ve got.”
Beloveds Farm is now home to more than 16 Arabians, including mares, foals, youngsters and stallions, and Dempsey maintains show strings with trainers Andy Sellman and Ted Carson. After the Scottsdale Auction purchase, she also bought a few mares: Rohara MarcAlyssa, Rohara Via Donna, JP Extreme Obsession, Magnums Angel JD, and Ava Afire, and early in 2014, she added AP Sheez Sassy. Within three foals crops, she has assembled a serious population.
Here’s a sketch of her achievements and her plans for the future.

Pat Dempsey takes her success in stride. After all, she’s been here before; her history with Arabians through the years is another story worth telling, but for now, she is focused on the future. “I just make my decisions from this moment to the next moment, based on the facts I have,” she says, trying to explain her process. It resists explanation, but so far, the facts are proving that her instincts run true.
