In brief: Potentially nothing

A horseshoe kidney is a developmental anomaly of the kidneys where the lower ends are joined together. This means that the joined kidneys tend to be located somewhat lower than "normal" kidneys.
In addition, there tends to be a higher risk of having associated drainage issues of the kidneys and potentially kidney stones as well. See a urologist for an evaluation.
