Rebrake? You mean he won't stop?
Sorry I just couldn't resist!! The devil made me do it.
You can retrain a horse. I do it often when I get soured horses. However, I do it with positive reinforcement and very minimal punishment. I just don't lose trust, but rebuild it.
Different methods might get very different results, I'm afraid.
