Why is horse meat cheap?

I sometimes buy meat in Migros, and it seems that their horse steaks are cheaper than their beef steaks. I also saw some ostrich steaks that are more expensive than horse, but still cheaper than beef.

Why is that? Is beef just extra expensive in Switzerland, or is there something inferior about the horse/ostrich meat? Is it just supply and demand?
