Wry Nose?

I was looking at a 4 year old QH the other day with what appears to be a mild case of wry nose. It doesn't look like the muzzle is really bent, but his left nostril is a good 4-6 inches above his right. I don't have any pictures but I'm just wondering if this could possibly affect his performance and respiration. I would like to do western competitions with him if I buy him (his pedigree is awesome) and his training would be fairly rigorous. I'd like to get your guys' advice first before deciding if I want to go back for another look because my vet charges me a small fee to come out

I found this. ( It is my understanding that back in the day the practice was to euthanize them because it is a hereditary/genetic condition. Kinda makes me wonder if the HYPP survived because of no immediate physical manifestations.)

Your first link isn't working. I've been looking all over and I can't seem to find anything that explains if it's just a surface deformation or if it can really affect his physical capabilities.
