Hehe, sounds like my Hoover. He's what my friend calls a "stumble bum." He's trimmed to the nines, actually gets xrays on his legs (because of his pasterns) , gets a joint supplement, but he still finds some way to trip. He used to get really scared because he didn't know what happened, too.
He's done it as long as I've had him, tho. When he starts tripping more, I know to call the farrier ASAP (I usually catch the length before he gets to that point...but sometimes our farrier can't make it out on regular visits). I can't really give advice that hasn't already been given. If the farrier doesn't help him, get a vet out there to check him.
