In all honesty, he's not going to get a sprain from tripping - horses legs are surprisingly strong for their size compared to bodyweight. He's more like to injure himself by tripping and going down on his knees - if you were riding on concrete, I might suggest knee boots but I don't think it's really an issue.
Like Tiny said, riding him more forwards into a contact will help - he sounds like he's just slobbing along and just hitching a toe because he's not concentrating.
