import Data.List.SplitLists
foldl1((++).init).splitOn"^H"

Usage example:

> map (foldl1((++).init).splitOn"^H") ["Horse^H^H^H^H^HCow", "123^H45^H^H^H78^H", "Digital Trauma^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^HMaria Tidal Tug^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^HDigital Trauma"]
["Cow","17","Digital Trauma"]

How it works:

                  splitOn"^H"     -- split on substring "^H", e.g "Horse^H^H^H^H^HCow" -> ["Horse","","","","","Cow"]
                 .                -- then
foldl1(         )                 -- fold from left by
            init                  --   first dropping the last char from the left argument
       (++).                      --   second concatenating left and right argument
