Your best bet would be to "apprentice" to a trainer and get really on board with their training. I'm only 5'1 so I got to do all the ponies to begin with, then moving on to starting most of them.

At first you'll run off word of mouth and be prepared to keep prices low until you have a bit if a portfolio behind you.

I like Prinella's suggestion. Especially since you are already working for another trainer.

Word of mouth still seems to be the best way. Keep riding everything you can and with successes will come a request or two.

With horse professions it's truly a matter of 'who you know, not what you know' that matters. So go out there and get to know as many people as you can in your area, intern, apprentice, volunteer at rescues! None of those things will hurt. :) Good luck!
