Hi. I am looking for a translation of the word "Fly" (the verb, not the insect). The context is referring to a horse in mid-jump or flight. I'm hoping this is enough to find something workable. Thanks so much for your time.

Unlike English, Greek morphology offers you a choice:  
πέτεται:  it is flying
πέτου:  fly!
πέτεσθαι:  to fly, flying

As for the leap of a horse:
ἅλλεται:  it is leaping
ἁλοῦ:  leap!
ἁλέσθαι:  to leap, leaping
