How can I get more experience with horses outside of taking lessons?

I am 15 and I have been taking weekly lessons for 7 and half years. I love riding and horses are all I ever think about.

What are some ways to spend time with these crazy beasts outside... show more I am 15 and I have been taking weekly lessons for 7 and half years. I love riding and horses are all I ever think about.
