As long as the pony is well-trained, I would go with a french-link. It is pretty mild and the double joint will help it fit in most mouths comfortably.

I would only use a kimberwick after the child knows how to ride - including having a secure seat and quiet hands. So if this child is a beginner it will be a ways off before they would be ready for that level of bit. It can be useful in the right situations, but a child just starting out is not it.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

I'd go with a French Link. I use a plain snaffle bit on my horse and I know you can get them flavoured to make it more enjoyable for your horse/pony. But I am unsure how "flavoured" they are.
