I was wondering what the time gap is when it is hard to tell if the mare is bred when using either ultrasound or palpation?

Typically anywhere from about 85/90 days through to around 150/160.

The size and weight of the fetus pull it over the pelvic brim into the abdominal cavity and out of reach of the palpator. By about 150 days or so it has increased in size again to the point where it once again becomes palpable.

This inability to determine will not be the case in all mares though.

In the North America you will have to consult individual veterinary practice acts. As a general rule though, you can do anything to your own mares, but you get into the area of diagnsosis if working on outside mares, and hence are likely to be in contravention of the State or Province's VPA. There are exceptions though - commonly under exemptions relative to livestock management - so consult your State's/Province's VPA.

Countries outside North America will have their own rules and regulations. In the UK for example, it is now legal to inseminate your own or outside mares if you are certified by DEFRA to perform equine AI. Rectal work however is specifically identified as a veterinary procedure.
