Does anybody know which is better?

Moscow, PA(Zone 5b)

I'm looking into buying a round pen and have been told galvanized is better than painted steel, that is as long as the steel doesn't become exposed. I left a horse trailer in the pasture once to make it easier on me to practice loading and the horses started biting the fenders scratching the paint off and now they are all rusted. My husband says that powder coat is harder and they won't be able to scratch it off.Does any one have any experience with this? Thanks.

My round pen is painted and I have had to repaint it every couple of years. I don't know about powder coating, but I would definitely buy galvanized if I were to get a new one. I have galvanized gates that are 20 years old and still in good condition.

Thanks, That helps alot. I've been getting better prices on galvanized also.
