Spanish term or phrase: doble fondo-vertical a un tranco
Hello. This is from a local newspaper article on a show jumping competition. I am pretty sure "a un tranco" is something like "in one stride", and I have seen "vertical" as a fence type, but I'm stuck on "doble fondo".

"Se comenzó con la prueba de 0.60m de altura máxima y 8 obstáculos y se fue subiendo hasta 1.30m, con doce esfuerzos y una combinación (doble fondo-vertical a un tranco) desde la prueba de 1.10m."

Thanks for your help

"Upright Fence
This is a pole that goes straight across and is at the same height on both of the jump wings. [...]
Spread Fence
This is a single fence that uses two pairs of jump wings so that the fence can be increased in both height and width."
