What is a "pigeon-breasted" horse?

A pigeon-breasted horse appears to have a "wishbone." It's actually caused by the front legs being set a little too far back. It can affect a horse's gait, but can actually help the horse make quick turns.

(You have to look carefully to see it because it's behind this Paint horse's head, but he is definitely pigeon-breasted).
