Pity there was no such thing…

I assume they are meant to be German Guard cavalry.

What do you mean, GarrisonMiniatures? The Praetorians included a cavalry component quite separate from the German guards. See for instance the inscription of Paullinus, cavalryman of the first Praetorian cohort, at link

Also link

And "In [23] he (Hyginus) lists the units: cohortes praetoriae, equites praetoriani, equites singulares imperatoris, alae miliariae or quingenariae, vexillarii and cohortes secundae or peditatae quingenariae." – link
