Garcia's first time in the CFD arena was at the age of 8, competing in junior barrel racing. She represented CFD across Wyoming and surrounding states for five years as a Dandy.

“It is a true honor to be selected as the 2023 Lady-in-Waiting," said Garcia. "To become my own childhood hero is an indescribable feeling!"

Garcia will work with Miss Frontier Jordan Johnson to represent CFD.

"To know I have been chosen to represent the 3,000-plus volunteers who are Cheyenne Frontier Days and continue the legacy of Cheyenne Frontier Days royalty is truly humbling," said Garcia.

"I hope to make each person proud and fill the boots of those who rode before me,” she added.

LOOK: VIntage Postcards Showing-Off Cheyenne Frontier Days Through the Years

Postcards have been a thing since the mid-1800s. Sending pictures and short messages on card-stock paper to friends and families really took off in the first half of the 20th century. While not quite as popular today, they still exist, and collecting postcards even has a special name, Deltiology.

Postcards were made for a lot of things, like vacation destinations and events. Cheyenne Frontier Days was the source of many. On the auction site eBay we found a lot of vintage postcards with fascinating pictures of Cheyenne and the Daddy of 'Em All.
