Mold on leather isn't necessarily a bad thing . It means the leather is healthy. If its growing because of being put up wet, then that can be a bad thing.
We have an old well oiled saddle that will start to mold occasionally. It doesn't get used often and sits for long periods. I just take it outside and give it a good cleaning/conditioning and put it back in the tack barn.
ETA- I use water and the shampoo I use on my hair to clean the mold off. You want to go with a Ph neutral cleaner.
