Why is Argentina considered the Polo Capital of the world

Well there are 20,000 registered polo players in Argentina, more than ten times of each of the US and UK for a start. There are more than 100,000 grooms who specifically care for horses. Polo in Argentina is more affordable and of a higher standard than anywhere else.  Argentina’s best polo team has not lost against another country since 1932! Foreigners can play in Argentina at any level and simply fly in for the experience, with their entire trip and horse-needs catered to. There are ten men with an Argentine handicap of 10 goals in Polo. ( handicaps begin at minus two for beginners to an elite handicap of 10). All but one of these men is Argentine. Land in Lobos is nearly one quarter of that in Pilar, the once-traditional capital of polo. Lobos is thirty minutes from the airport. The highway to Lobos is uncrowded and of a better standard than I-95 from Palm Beach and M-25 in England. Plus the greatest player the world has ever seen, has based his entire operation in Cañuelas, forty five minutes north of Lobos. You can join them.
