Bramble, 45, of Sutton Terrace, Stalham, Norwich, and Watson, 52, of Christchurch Street, Ipswich, were each charged with obstructing or disrupting a person engaged in a lawful activity.
Both Bramble and Watson denied an allegation that, having trespassed on a farmer's private field, adjacent to Station Road, Blaxhall, near Woodbridge, they intimidated and harassed people engaged in a lawful hunt, intending to have the effect of obstructing or disrupting the activity.
The offences are alleged to have taken place on March 2 this year.
