Over At the Knees

If there is a horse who is a little over at the knees, are there any issues it can lead to? Is it okay for a horse like this to be eventing at levels above training?

As long as the horse isn't so over at the knees that it's compromising the way the animal moves, there should be no reason why the horse can't compete above training levels.

Okay that makes sense. I know sometimes retired racehorses have it, but sometimes it's caused from injury. What other causes are there?

If its not waywayway over the knee, then it shouldnt. Like all conformation faults, it may effect some horses, other hroses with it might be perfectly fine. :)

Yeah, because there is this one horse that I was going to go see, and the owner showed me pictures, and he looked like he was a little over the knee, but she said it doesn't affect him.
