Should a biting horse be given a second chance or should he be sold?


I purchased a horse 5 months ago that seemed to have a great temperament until recently. When we bought him, he was malnourished and had severe rain rot. It seems, though, that even though his health has improved, his behavior has worsened. While my husband was asking him to back up (from the ground), the horse bit him in the chest. I would like to know if others have had experience with horses that bite and how they corrected the situation. I do not have a lot of experience with horses. Therefore, I'm wondering if this behavior can be exterminated or if I'd be better off selling him.
