Eventing and endurance

I've recently been conditioning an Arab for eventing, we're working on getting his head down and such, and as devoted as I am to eventing I've been looking into endurance as well. Do these disciplines go sort of hand-in-hand? Do any of you out there have a horse that actively participates in both?

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.

You would have to set a lot of time aside to train for endurance, leaving little time and energy to do eventing. I'm not saying it couldn't be done, but I don't think you would be doing any of the upper levels. Maybe beginner novice or novice.
