My husband and I are experienced river runners, but this was the first experience for our six and eight-year-old girls (each about 50lbs). We really wanted them to experience whitewater on a short trip and from the height of a raft before we attempted to take them on our multi-day kayak trips. I was slightly concerned as more than one operator in the area had basically told me I was crazy to want to take kids this small in class III rapids. I needn't have worried. Our guide expertly maneuvered us through the Shoshone rapids and by the third major rapid our girls were loving it. In fact, our six-year-old even got brave enough to ride bull through some of the class II rapids. Their only complaint was there weren't enough rapids at the end of the trip. Glenwood Canyon Rafting was great to work with from start to finish, and our guide was fantastic. I highly recommend a trip with these guys.
