The 1989 edition
of the Portuguese Equine Genealogical Book (Stud Book)
recognizes six "heads of lineage", one mare and six stallions,
that had an important contribution to the formation of
the present Lusitano herd.
Veiga (MV) stallion, born in 1931, son of Lidador (MV)
and Bagocha (MV).
Dominquez Hermanos (DH) stallion, born in 1927, sired
by Presumido (DH) with Primorosa II (DH).
Dominquez Hermanos (DH) stallion, born in 1930, son of
Alegre II (DH) and Destinada (DH).
II: an Antonio Fontes Pereira de Melo (APM) stallion, born
in 1930, sired by Marialva (APM) with Campina (APM).
Alter Real (AR) stallion, born in 1923, son of Gaivoto
(AR) and Gavina (AR).
HUCHARIA: a Coudelaria Nacional (CN) mare, born in 1943, daughter
of Cartujano (APT) and Vizcaina (MRB).
Chiefs" are the founding fathers/mother of the three
main lineages of Lusitanos: Andrade, Veiga and Coudelaria
Nacional, each line differing from the others by
variations in individual characteristics, but all strictly
framed within the race standard.
