    The horses I'm used to tend to look something like this in the winter:

    I.e I can't be much help with the blanket or not issue, I've never blanketed a horse. You have to be careful of course about turning them back out into the cold after a ride though. I.e need to cool down and get dry in a somewhat heated stable first etc.

    Or if the stable isn't heated, you can use a fleece rug. That keeps the horse warm and get's the water off the coat and makes it lie on top of the rug. :)
    And that goes for rugged horses too.. never lt it out in it's normal rug when it's wet. It'll have troubles drying and can even get a rainrot if you're unlucky, so makesure to keep the horse dry under his rugs, or let him dry in the stable. Well, with moderation, f he just got a little sweaty at the girth it doesn't matter much since it blows kinda free there anyway and they don't loose much body heat there.. but any sweat under the saddle or sides should be avoided when you turn him out.
