I second Hunter.

Instruments really should be kept at room temperature as much as possible but....

The case insulates the horn to some extent. Better cases are usually molded styrofoam inside. If your cooler closes tight, just stick it in there without the cold pack. You probably want some fluffy padding to dampen vibration and shocks. If you have a bed topper, open a window.

The main thing is that you want to avoid quick temperature changes. If the horn itself does get warm, you probably want to avoid taking it out while you are sitting under the air conditioner.

I used to walk around in Colorado and Minnesota in below freezing temperatures, at night, for as long as an hour. I put the horn in the case, wrapped that in a fleece blanket (making several layers), and then put that in a briefcase style bag. It worked fine. I don't remember the horn getting cold.
