This diagnosis refers to a conformational abnormality of the carpus in which the cannon bone lies outside of a line that otherwise runs down the middle of the limb (when viewed from the front).
This is not a desirable conformation for breeding stock or performance horses of any kind because the mechanics of this conformation tends to predispose to other injuries of the carpus, arthritis and splint injuries.
Mild Bench knee may not be of much consequence for horses used for pleasure use.
There is nothing that can be done medically or surgically to “fix” this problem.
