Justine Betzler joined the Lynchburg equestrian team as a riding instructor and coach in January of 2017. Her duties include recruiting for all areas of the riding program and serving as the IHSA hunt seat coach.
In her first year at Lynchburg, Betzler mentored six regional qualifiers, two zone qualifiers, and a Cacchione Cup qualifier.
Betzler rode at Alabama from 2011-15, where she was a founding member of the Crimson Tide's equestrian team and rode IHSA until the school introduced an NCEA Scrimmage team, and Betzler competed for that group. Prior to her work at Lynchburg, Betzler served as a student assistant at Alabama and worked as an instructor at Westminster Farm in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
