After breeding with this mare, which was a Brazilian horse with a stallion that was an Andalusian, the result was a foal called Monarca, which is thought to be the founding member of the Campolina Horse.

However, though Monarca, part Andalusian and part Barb Blood is considered the founding member of the breed, there are many other breeds of horses that has significantly influenced the breed altogether.

These breeds include the Rio Verde, which is a breed from the Mangalarga Machador line, as well as the Yanke Prince, which is an American Saddle Horse breed. The Teffer, a Holsteiner breed, the Golias a quarter Clydesdale Breed, and the Menelike, an Anglo-Normand breed all contributed to the Campolina Breed formation.
