Tied in at the knee? What does it mean for her?

My vet mentioned this today when looking at my (admittedly conformationally challenged) rescue filly.

I'm sorry, I'm posting off my phone, so no clear photos to prove it.

But although I know what this means in terms of structure, I'm not too sure what the consequences are for my girl...
How bad is this flaw generally? What does it mean for her future soundness? What should I avoid or pursue?
Is there any positives? What are the negatives? Etc.

I'm rambling, I know.

Personally, I'm hoping for her to be someone's beloved trail buddy in the future, or pleasure riding horse (if that's the right term to use), so I won't ever expect her to make the national team, if you know what I mean.
I just want her to have a good life. She deserves it, bless her :)

Many of today's horses are tied in and never have a single issue. Unless it is an extreme case, then I really wouldn't worry about it.

Thank you, smrobs, for your reply. I personally don't think its extreme. But I'm no expert, and wouldn't have noticed it if my vet hadn't pointed it out.
