What I have learned in life is that you can only control what YOU do, not others. If you try to control other people or worry about what they have that you don't, you will only make yourself happy. You havent walked in their shoes so you really don't know how easy their life is. All you can do is work hard and do your best, and be happy with how you did.
I hate when people get judged about having a 'fancy' or 'push button' horse. When I started eventing my pony we were winning right away and people used to whisper about how I just sat there and didnt do anything. Little did they know, my pony was abused and it took be years to train him. People were very snotty to me when I won or placed, but I didnt let it bother me, I was just proud of me and my pony.
You will be a lot happier if you stop worrying about other people.
