A total of over 200 kids aged 5-12 worked together with their parents to break the Guinness World Record for the largest painting of a horse in Beijing on Sunday.

The event was organized by SINOCAP - the organizer behind Wuma, the Chinese edition of the famous Canadian equestrian show Cavalia - in order to celebrate Wuma's 50th show since its debut on April 28 at the capital's Chaoyang Park.

Working with a pre-made outline, it was up to the kids and their parents to color in the picture, which measures 1,200 square meters in size, with reds, blues and oranges.

The initial sketch was based on the white Arabian horse that can be seen in the show's poster. According to a press release for the event, the color red represents the children, blue represents the world and orange stands for the Wuma show.

The new giant painting hopes to break the record set by a French 3D painting that measured about 1,120 square meters in size.

The equestrian show has 40 horses from Spain, France and North, Central and South America.

The show is held in a giant tent, and combines acrobatics, live music and special effects. The stage includes the use of a multimedia screen for different backgrounds, 2,500 tons of sand as well as 120,000 liters of recycled water.
