Let's say the 3 loops start going to the right. As you come to the centerline (about 1 stride before it) straighten then as you cross the centerline step into (new) inside stirrup (to the left in this example) use new inside leg at the girth and squeeze/release on new outside rein. Horse should now be bent in the new direction - in this example bent to the right. As you cross the centerline again you repeat the process in reverse and the horse should be bent in the new direction - to the right.
