I have found things like Liverpools and Buxtons in little mouths is just too much ironmongery.
Wilsons are fine for little mouths, but you have to be careful they don't spin them round just before you do the reins up. We use Butterfly Pelhams on the top ring with a French link. Nearly all our Shetlans told me what I could to with a Liverpool.
Correct pony bits are Wilsons and Butterfly Pelhams, Liverpools if you are in a painted original vehicle. Army reversibles and Buxtons are more for big carriage horses. Less is more for little ponies
The half ring Liverpool is only for pairs and teams.
