Its not a "conspiracy", its a mistake. Horsemeat is, at least, in the UK and ireland, 3x more expensive than beef because theres such a small market for it. They aren't going to put horsemeat in burgers, brand it as beef, just to "get one over" you, because they'd be taking a huge loss. It is actually cheaper to sell actual beef as beef, than to sell horsemeat as beef.
