It's really not a big deal at all. They would require official vet work papers, and you'll need to contact the border to make sure exactly what vaccinations are required for a horse to enter the US (Coggins is always neccesary).
After that, what you need to remember is you're going to get hit HARD by duty. It's still considered a sale item, so if you come to Canada for one day to pick it up, you're going to get nailed with that whole "anything over $100" nonsense.
Definately, I'd contact the border though and find out the specifics. I know it's a little different, but Shay-la bought a miniature from the US with her mom, and all they needed was the required vet work. Heck, it came back in their truck with them. I was reading a document that states some specific animals need permits and quarantines though, so definitely contact. It may have changed since they brought the mini back with them.
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
