I do a circle or 2 of canter sometime after 10 mins walk before actually trot. Not like I really want it, but she works and feels much better after that (of course I'm talking about horse in shape, not after long winter break). It's not a fly, but controlled canter (if I'd try that on my other horse she'd go into buck, because she needs to be warmed up pretty good before cantering). I raised this question here at the forum before, and some people mentioned horses with the same need. I don't think it'll hurt something badly. Although jumping on and taking off doesn't sound like a good idea. May pull a muscle or something.
