At least in some places such as Rio Grande do Sul, there is a whole cultural significance of the horse that won't make it disappear so soon.

Maybe we'll see a new form of Amish that adopt ICE as their top level technology, but refuse to use fusion power or something. You think they progressively adjust up the technology level in response to recent developments?
I'm not familiar with the Amish perspectives on life and technology, but it doesn't surprise me that some groups prefer to keep some low tech for the most diverse reasons.
