I bought this mare early last spring and she was in bad need of TLC and groceries...(very thin) but she has a great pedigree and conformation...I got her looking good by mid spring and tried to breed her by live cover...she stood good and did reject the stud after the cycle but still had a lite tail and a winking problem...after 15 days ultrasounded her and she was open...went threw the same process 2 more times. after the last breeding I did ultrasound her to make sure she did ovulate and she did. the 4th time I bred her I put her on Regumate after I made sure she ovulated. the symptoms of heat went away but she still did not settle...is there anything else that I can try?

Has she had a complete Repo exam and work up? Culture, Biopsy, check for Tumors, etc...??

Bear in mind that some mares display an apparent estrus ("heat") behaviour as a sign of submission. This may well be why you are seeing such continued apparent behaviour.

If you have bred her multiple times with no pregnancy, I think that a pre-breeding work-up by a vet is certainly warranted, with especial attention paid to uterine condition and pre- and post-breeding fluid presence. The culture (and cytology), or biopsy as mentioned above would certainly assist. I would also be looking for ultrasounds during the breeding process to identify the presence or absence of uterine fluid, and confirm correct breeding timing and ovulation.

We find that mares that arrive at the beginning of the season in very poor condition(yes, some people confuse 'light condition' with emaciated.), often won't take until very late, if at all that year. No matter how much weight they gain in the process. Particularly maidens.
But I think Jos' suggestion is the way to go first. If all is well there, I'd watch for signs of a "normal" cycle and go on the one following. That is if time is not crucial.
