The nomination of the Magister Equitum was left to the choice of the Dictator, unless a senatus consultum specified, as was sometimes the case, the name of the person who was to be appointed.
The Magister Equitum was granted Praetorian imperium, thus was subject to the imperium of the Dictator, but in the Dictator’s absence, he became his representative, and exercised the same powers as the Dictator.
The Magister Equitum was originally, as his name implies, the commander of the cavalry, while the Dictator was at the head of the legions: the infantry.

But the new magister militum was still a thorn in the side of the Empire; he quarrelled with the Emperor in 487, revolted, and marched with his Ostrogoths to the walls of Constantinople.

Along with the Dictator there was always a Magister Equitum, the Master of the Cavalry, to serve as the Dicator’s most senior official.
The Dictator could not be without a Magister Equitum to assist him, and, consequently, if the first Magister Equitum died during the six months of the dictatorship, another had to be nominated in his stead.
The Magister Equitum was granted Praetorian imperium, thus was subject to the imperium of the Dictator, but in the Dicator’s absence, he became his representative, and exercised the same powers as the Dictator.

 Roman Emperors - DIR Theodosius I
One notes that Theodosius' magister peditum praesentalis Richomer was the uncle of Valentinian's magister equitum praesentalis Arbogast, who was effectively the sole commander of Valentinian's forces at this point.
Although Stilicho managed to increase the power of the magister peditum praesentalis to the disadvantage of his colleague the magister equitum praesentalis and claimed that Theodosius had appointed him as guardian for both his sons, this tells us more about his cunning and ambition than it does about Theodosius' constitutional arrangements.
But the office of magister militum per Occidentem, or whatever other title one wishes to use to describe the appointment of a single supreme military commander, was entirely without precedent and an obvious threat to the independence of any emperor.
