I know little about eventing other than some basic reading, but Id say other than both involve riding a horse they two have little to do with eachother.
The skills involved in eventing can be helpful, control and balance is always good, but I would assume a short track full of jumping, over in a couple minutes isnt the same type of physical demands as steady movement over 5 to 20 hours. I don't see why you couldnt do both, course I don't see why an endurance horse couldnt also run barrels or work cows, just not what I would call hand in hand, they are completely different games.
