Your question is how to help a horse overcome a bad experience? Well the answer is the same in how anyone or animal is assisted in getting over a bad experience, you replace it with many good experiences. OP, you said your horse is at the trainers, let the trainer do the work, that is what you pay them money for. When I was training for the public, if someone hired me to train their horse, then came back with all sorts of methods to try that was suggested to them by an online forum, I would hand them the leadrope and say "have at it" and leave. And no, I wouldn't refund their training fees, I would charge more for undoing any damage they did!
