Red, White, and BOULET

 Red, White, and BOULET!

Our country will be proudly celebrating Independence Day this weekend. There will be family barbecues, fireworks displays, and countless thanks to the men and women who protect and defend our freedom.  It is important to note that you have another freedom that you may not realize: the freedom to choose which physical therapy and wellness center you go to for treatment.

For your rehabilitation needs, you have a choice. Dealing with an injury can be scary and stressful. Your doctor can decide what treatment is best, but when it comes to choosing your rehabilitation needs, that is entirely your decision. Doctors may give you a list of rehabilitation centers, but remember that those are merely suggestions from your doctor. It is not mandatory for you to choose someone from a list that is handed to you. You should go to a facility that can accommodate your needs and makes you feel the most comfortable. Boulet Physical Therapy and Wellness will be happy to answer any and all questions about our services that you may have. We want you to be well educated before making a decision about where you will receive rehabilitation. The freedom to choose is entirely yours, and no one should force you to make a decision exclusively from a list.
Just as you have the freedom to choose where you want to get treated, we also celebrate our staff who freely chooses to be a part of our team each and every day. We would like to introduce our newest team member, Robbie Schexnailder. Robbie is our new Physical Therapist. She and Patricia Boulet have worked together before at Our Lady of Lourde's. These two ladies also graduated together in 1986. Together, they share a combined 58 years of experience. Boulet Physical Therapy and Wellness is very excited to have Robbie on board. Her passion and dedication to her patients are just two of the many qualities that make Robbie stand out among others in the industry.  To learn more about Robbie, visit our website and check out her biography! 


 There is truly so much freedom to celebrate. Whether you are celebrating with friends or family, we wish you a Happy 4th of July and a wonderful weekend filled with FREEDOM.



We will be starting a brand new Lunch & Learn series that will take place in our office on the first Wednesday of every month. Our first Lunch & Learn will be on Wednesday, August 5, 2015 from 12:15pm - 12:30pm. These lunches will be quick 15-minute lunches where we will discuss different topics pertaining to physical therapy and wellness. Lunch will be provided, and anyone is welcome to attend. The lunches will be free; we just ask that you RSVP by emailing or calling our office at 337-264-9856. RSVPs will be accepted until 12pm the day before each lunch. Join us for this unique experience and get a chance to meet our team!

We Give Horses A Ride at the Slide of Your Life.

 (Oklahoma City, Okla.) - Equine Motorcoach™ and the Equine Carriage Trailer are on site at the National Reining Horse Associaton (NRHA) Derby this week at the Oklahoma State Fair in Oklahoma City, Okla.  The transport and trailer have been touring since early June through Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri and now, Oklahoma.
The 2015 NRHA Derby takes place through June 27.In partnership with trade show vendors, NRHA Partners and the Oklahoma City Convention and Visitors Bureau, the NRHA Zone is going to be buzzing all week long. In addition to a world-class equestrian competition, spectators can take advantage of new, engaging experiences to make the NRHA Derby a fun experience for the entire family.

Equine Motorcoach has been a part of NRHA events in the past. The all in one RV and horse transport was a presenting sponsor for the 2008 Adequan®/USEF National Open Reining Championship. That event brought the nation’s finest reiners together to compete for their chance to land a spot on the U.S. Reining Team. The National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Derby hosted the competition at the Oklahoma State Fair grounds in Oklahoma City, Okla.
The United States team was selected at the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) National Reining Championship that year. To compete at the USEF National Reining Championship, riders needed to have at least competed at one of four qualifying shows held across the United States. The top four reiners from the U.S. at the National Reining Championship at the NRHA Derby went on to compete at the first-ever 2008 FEI World Reining Championships in September in Manerbio, Italy.

Craig Schmersal guided Mr Dual Rey (Mister Dual Pep x Robin Red Rae) owned by Holly Casey, Mansfield, Ga, to win the class and earn a $7,000 paycheck.

Placing second was Jordan Larson riding Lena Gallo (Gallo Del Cielo x Heavenly Doc) owned by Lapke Quarter Horses, Logan, Iowa with a score of 223.5. They earned $5,500 for their efforts.

Rounding out the team of four were Pete Kyle on A Poco Bueno Dunit (Hollywood Dun It x Champs Poco Girl) and Tom McCutcheon on Ruf Hearted Jac (Lil Ruf Peppy x Miss Jac Of Hearts), both with scores of 222 for a third-place tie. A Poco Bueno Dunit is owned by Sandi Holt of Aubrey, Texas. Ruf Hearted Jac is owned by Sarah Willeman of Gloucester, Mass. Each team earned $4,125 for the tie.

Equine Motorcoach was on display during the 2008 NRHA Derby week in Oklahoma City, returned in 2012 for the NHRA Futurity and the 2015 model is now on display this week.
