[RC] Which Blanket on Trailered Horse? - Val Nicoson

Will be trailering my horse a few hours south of me
and was wondering how to decide whether to use a light
or heavier weight blanket on her.
We are in the midwest and she already has a nice
winter coat on as she is pasture kept.  The trailer is
a 2h bp and not fully enclosed as it was about 4 slats
on both sides that are open at the top and the upper
back is also open.  
I know it's one thing to just stand around in a
pasture but another to be going down the road with the
windchill factor thrown in, in addition to realizing
as the day warms up that she could also get too warm
under xxx blanket.  We will be trailering in early
morning (or whenever we get moving) and arriving at
destination about early midday.
So at what temps do you decide upon a light cotton
sheet and a water-resistant woollined blanket?  These
are the only two blankets we've got to choose from. 
Should I use both perhaps?  Or let her go without
which I think is not a good option?
