The contemporary stage of breeding in Argentina began in 1984 with the founding of the Argentine Association of Polo Horse Breeders and the creation of the Polo Argentino breed, whose records are carried by the Argentine Rural Society.
This initiative is due to a group of enthusiastic breeders who saw the need to put a name and surname to this equine raised since the 19th century in Argentina.
From there you can know the genetics of the animals enrolled and follow the most productive lines by aptitude. It is observed in auctions, exhibitions and in the courts, that in the genealogy of these products, there are grandparents / as and great-grandparents / as players and many in the pole of high handicap. This great leap in the breeding of the polo horse was given by those visionary breeders, who created this breed, which like that Pure Blood of the United Kingdom, was only made based on the crossbreeding, the consanguinity between the outstanding specimens of the same family and especially the functional selection.
The same began accepting the mestizo mares of the existing herds and large producers of this type of horses, which by type was accepted as founders of each cabin. With the Pure Blood of Carrera stallions the same thing happened. At the same time, the mares playing at any handicap were recorded as pure.
The products of this crossbreeding were considered pure pedigree, both females and males, castrated or whole. Over the years these whole males became together with the Pure Blood of Race parents of herds.
The last stage to register animals of pedigree, was only to accept children of registered players mares and parents Pure Blood or Argentine Polo, and no longer by type.
