    Question Moving a Horse Internationally -- US to Canada

    Theoretically speaking, if one was moving a horse across the US border into Canada ( permanently ) what would one need to acquire for said horse to make it successfully across the border ( legally ) ?

    So swimming it across Lake Superior is not a good idea? Shoot!

    Yeah, definitely planning on the coggins and health cert. ... just wondering what else they might require??? I tried googling but all that brought up were shipping companies websites. Not helpful.

    Alrighty, its quite simple lol!

    All you need is:

    International Health Papers
    Coggins

    You don't need an inspection (say, when I go into the US with a horse and its going to be permanent it needs to be inspected by a federal vet).

    Make sure the international health papers are done PROPERLY otherwise you will have a tone of trouble at the border....

    THey will want to look at your horse (some ask you open the trailer so they can have a good look (without unloading the horse), some just want you to drop down the windows (if you have drop down windows) so they can have a peak.....all depends on who is on and what they like to do.

    Its a very simple process...

    If you plan to haul into Canada, your horse must be accompanied by a specialized international health certificate filled out by your veterinarian and endorsed by the USDA's Animal Plant and Health Inspection Service (APHIS).

    That was the only thing i have found so far...Maybe try asking your vet. They may know..

    google..

    "importing equine to Canada" or " importing horse into Canada"

    You will get more results than saying moving...
